Kelsie Reaves as a major general. Same guy?

 

I've looked at this one and wondered if he qualified for a 2nd CIB. Thoughts

Accidentally badly cropped, but, an array of Virginia Protective Force SSI on the officers flanking Virginia's wartime governor, Colgate Darden.  Also on display is the Virginia Reserve Militia's huge chest patch, since the majority of men in the photo were as the caption says part of the VRM's Co. No. 29 at Tappahannock.

He was Infantry, commissioned out of the Point in 1937, so my guess is the CIB is for WWII, don't know yet his unit as he was a Lt Col, probably a Battalion Commander, In Korea? perhaps then in a high staff postion, one of the Corps or maybe Eighth Army.

 

His 1944 O listing.

ERROR ON THAT O LISTING.

 

We can no longer DELETE images if we make a mistake.
