I had this listed in another area. I broke down and bought a scanner so now everything looks better. These were my Grandpa's items. He was a 30 year Navy man. 20 active and 10 reserve. He started WW2 on the USS Oklahoma and was a life time member of the Pearl Harbor Survivor's Association.  It will take me a bit to post the major items. I have a large folder full of papers and his photo's.
