Nice kit and great clean up Bob! Although I'm curious as to why the family would have blocked out Captain Murray's name?
Here is the link of some before and after shots of the kit.
The kit also came with this Air Force Chaplaiin scarf with the original box.
Chaplain Murray was with the Army Air Coprs, then with the Air Force.
