A friend of mine just got this and I can't find it anywhere. It kinda looks GAR but it also looks Span Am.

Many thanks for the help!

Just look at the second topic down from this topic and I believe you will find your answer on page five (in posts #99 and #100) of that topic. It is the scanned pages of a book of American society badges and medals. It's amazing what you can find if you just look right in front of you.

So true, especially since the orders of posts constantly changes.

This is for the Regular and Volunteer Army and Navy Union apparently formed by Spanish American War veterans

You are in the MEDALS & DECORATIONS "Reference Section". 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.

Sincerely,
Chris / ADMIN
