Kurt, It's great that you were able to get some documentation on the LoM and Purple Heart from the personnel file. Very lucky that it survived the fire! Having the details on the awards really brings the group to life. (And the photo is great too.) The February 1943 wound date for the PH is interesting. I wonder what the specifics were on the injury. Obviously some sort of mistreatment by the Japs.

Awesome grouping Kurt! The documentation is the ticket.

In his group was Col. Chase's Japanese POW camp card.
What a small world.

Sorry you didn't get the rest of the group. However, you gave it one heck of an effort!
