Jay V,  you're welcome, glad to.  That he was a 21- year- old Chief Machinist citizen volunteer is pretty neat-- must have been born with a wrench in his hand.   That discharge is a great find,  hope you can turn up a USS Panther Sampson Medal to go with it!   The gravestone application form says "no medals", but I believe that refers to valor medals that could be indicated on the headstone.

Thanks for sharing that is a nice early one! I cool part is some of these paper items can be picked up for much cheaper then comparable medals! I have a few nice documents myself i picked up over the years just due to the history! Thanks for sharing and congrats on the find!
