The family found these papers today that pertain to the purple heart I showed yesterday. A nice little bonus to go with the heart.

Congrats on this terrific historical find. Marrying up these documents with the heart is fantastic and a great contribution to keeping this young warriors story upon conscious memory.   It'll be a great honor I'm sure to be a caretaker to this historic piece of history and a custodian to a sad reminder of why we're such a fortunate nation.  Thank you for sharing Reeves story.

You should contact the Museum of 20th Century Warfare at Fort Harrison in Indianapolis. They have a display model of the Indy built by the surviving crew. They might be able to shed more light on the documents. You can find the M20CW here:
