I just picked this trio to Admiral Richardson. I have included his Naval biography...he was the gentleman relieved in February 1941...he warned repeatedly about the possible dangers at Pearl Harbor.
These three medals were awarded to Admiral Richardson on
4 December 1941...

Great find. Another example of warnings falling on deaf ears surrounding an incredible series of events that changed the World and our Nation forever.

Well done sir.

Very neat!  Is that the certificate folded up in the WWI medal box?

That is a truly outstanding group.  I have seen these crosses individually.  But, I have never seen three to the same person before!  I'll say it again.  Outstanding!
