The group illustrated below is of a WWII Marine who became the sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin in the early 1980's. I have met collectors in the past that didn't think medals and badges belonged together but I'd bet even they wouldn't want to break up this group.

Very nice grouping. I always enjoy seeing the Phillipean Liberation Medal, especially in a grouping.

Fred,....Nice group....I think he may have been with an aviation unit because the Philippine Liberation was not usually awarded to infantry units.

This area is where posts from the general Medals & Decorations "discussion section" (http://www.usmilitar.....?showforum=83) are moved for permanent retention and education about the history of the various U.S. medals and military decorations.

As time moves forward, some of these posts may have additional information added to them by the moderators of this section. We ask for your input as well, especially in the correction of any erroneous information that may have inadvertently be posted..

We encourage further comments about this post and its content. In order to do so, you will need to start a new post in the general Medals & Decorations "discussion section" (here: http://www.usmilitar.....?showforum=83). And, as needed, we will be pleased to move any new and / or valued information that is derived from your post (and subsequent comments) into this reference area as its own standing post.

Please be advised: posting and / or editing is restricted on this post to moderator's and forum staff.
