If you are attempting to find a missing piece from a grouping, or just want to reunite broken groupings, post information here.

Our collectors world is smaller than you may think.

I'm looking for the Purple Heart and Silver Star to PFC Anthony "Leroy" Lange (from Chicago) of the 33rd Division who died on June 16, 45 in the Philippines. I have about 150 letters he wrote home to his mother.

Also looking for the Purple Heart to 2nd Lt Albert Dion (from Massachusetts), co-pilot of Tomahawk Warrior, a B-17 that was lost in a mid-air collision in 1944 in England. I have PH certificate, accolade, telegram, photos, etc.
