Hello All,

    I was just gifted this grouping belonging to General Horace Sanders so I thought I would share it.  I won't see it in person for about two weeks when I pick it up at my parents house, but I have a few photos Id thought Id share. Sanders Had an interesting career in Artillery and eventually went on to NORAD.  He was awarded the Legion of Merit Legionnaire upon his retirement and the ROK Order of Military Merit upon his departure from his assignment in S Korea during the late 1950s. There is a stack of papers and photos with the group I can't wait to go through, hopefully there will be some award documents to go with these awards. I hope you all enjoy the photos.

Vic

Nice Grouping.  Do you know if the medals are named?  Looking forward to seeing additional photos of the grouping.  Thanks for sharing.

Here is a picture of the Legion of Merit Legionnaire, the ROK medal I don't believe is named, just going on what I have found through internet searches, but it came in its original presentation box.

Also included was this Saint Barbara Patron Saint of Artillerymen medal. I don't know what the other medal is, if anyone recognizes it, I would be grateful. All in all, I was extremely lucky to get this group, as I had resigned myself to the fact that I would never be able to a  afford something like this.  So I guess I shouldn't give up hope that a paratrooper jump uniform of tanker jacket will show pat my door one day too. :)

Hi Vic,

 

There should be a number on the back of the Korean medal, and you are right it is not named, but in the bottom line of the text there is a 4 digit number.

 

Kind regards

Sampo

Firefighter,

   Thanks for the info.  I have seen the obituary, and printed it out to fo with my research so far.  I have his 1934 USMA yearbook, with a photo and description of him as young graduate.

I finally got to pick up the Generals grouping.  The Generals granddaughter brought in one last item for me while I happened to be there.  Here are a few more photos.
