This group was my Xmas present to myself and I’d thought I’d share since I find it neat. The group recently sold at auction and this part changed hands 3 times to get halfway across the country to me. It’s sad that his medals, other photo album, dress uniform, unbelievable painted sea bag and other items went in about 4 different directions. I have one photo album that I will try and post pictures of later. It came with 24 propaganda leaflets of which I posted pictures of my 2 favorite. The young marine joined shortly after WW2 and was in China in 1948 and then spent from late September 1951-about the same time in 1952 in Korea. Enjoy.Posted Image

I have a picture of him getting this medal in combat and it’s pinned to his chest.

I did get pics of duffel bag but it and his uniform sold for $375 plus commission to someone. It makes me drool to look at.

Great material.  That duffel bag is one of the best I've seen. Sorry it slipped away.

My Uncle, Frank, was with the 7th Marines and was at Chosin.
