This was one of my favorite acquisitions this year that I'd like to share. It all belonged to US Army General.
 
Highlights of his career: 
 
WWII: Asst. Chief of Staff to Gen. Stilwell in CBI Theater- Earned a Bronze Star
Korea: Commander of 23rd Infantry Regt- Earned a DSC, 2 Silver Stars, 3 Bronze Stars, the Purple Heart, and Air Medal
Post-Korea: Commander in Chief US Army Europe -1962-65, and Commanding General US Army Continental Command 1965-67, Earned a Legion of Merit and Distinguished Service Medal
 
The group includes his uniform with sewn ribbons, bullion stars, pin back airborne wings (he earned them as a Major General!). All of his boxed medals (including the shrapnel removed from his leg), original award citations and orders, photos, dog tags, lighters, etc.

Thank you all for the replies! I have been after a group of this type for years, and I guess 2017 was the year it came along. It holds a special place in my collection.

Unfortunately it wasn't in his group, but as CG of CONARC I don't think he wore it any longer.
