Recently found this grouping to Gustaf Sillen at a local antique mall. The medal rack and ribbon bars were being sold separately so I purchased them both. Researched the medals found they did infact to the the same individual as the ribbon bars. A couple of phone calls later and meeting with the seller. I have more items from the soldier.

Im still working on obtaining everything but the seller still has to go thru more boxes that she has. Her grandfather(if I remember correctly) knew Mr.Sillen and cleaned out his house when he passed away.

I apologize if my photos come out horrible as this is my first time posting on here. I found some musters draft cards on Ancestry and Fold3 so thats pretty neat.
