(U.S.) medals for chaplains in World War II

Where: real world

Searched: Wikipedia entry on "Bronze Star Medal"

It's the Battle of Monte Cassino. Our hero, an Army chaplain, is working at a battalion aid station (field hospital??) when a counter-attack brings the area up to the front line.

Heroics ensue, with our hero doing his share.

What medals is he eligible for? Not the Medal of Honor, or the Distinguished Service Cross ... Silver Star/ Bronze Star? The Wikipedia article implies being a chaplain may limit his eligibility.
