On my final day at the SOS , I stumbled across this towards the back of the room.
It is an officially named LOM and an unnamed Purple Heart to Col. Theodore Chase who commanded the 60th Coast Artillery on Corregidor and was captured, spending the rest of the war as a POW of the Japanese. He was liberated in 1945 and spent time in hospitals in the US before retiring in 1947. He was a 1909 graduate of the USMA . In WWI he served with the 59th CA earning 2 bars for his WWI Victory medal.
I really like the label that was on the bottom of the PH case!
The GO for the LOM is also an original document.
