Research on Paul Gale showed he was a 26th Infantry lieutenant who participated in North Africa and Sicily with the division as well as Normandy. Google showed that he received a Silver Star for actions on D-Day, which thus far matched the ribbons. Research in the 1st Division archives yielded that Gale left for the Pacific in late summer of '44. Turns out he was recruited by Wild Bill Donovan to join the OSS after Sicily but the division would not let him go. Apparently they lost the fight post-Normandy, however.
So it's a ribbon group with a couple findagrave photos but the story behind them is fantastic. A neat array of ribbons to boot, including a CBI-made rack. Internet searches show some of Gale's items are floating around; perhaps they will someday be reunited.
