Today at the flea market I picked up 3 military photo albums from 3 different soldiers. The best of the lot belonged to Melvin Earl Flynn (RA17295690). He served from 1950 until 1971. He died in Arkansas in 1979.
The photo album cover the period of the Korean War. It includes his award certificate for the Bronze Star, copies of the General Orders awarding him the medal, witness statements by 3 officers who viewed his bravery, and 118 photographs. Many of the photos are annotated. After the Korean War service he apparently went to paratrooper school becase ther are a numbers of photos documenting that training.
First his award certificate.
