  5. Below was the response to my email I had used one via the forum. Dear Brandyn, Thank you for taking the time to contact me regarding H.R. 6234, the Private Corrado Piccoli Purple Heart Preservation Act. Your views and opinions are valuable to me as I consider the important issues of the day. As you know, the Private Corrado Piccoli Purple Heart Preservation Act makes it a crime to knowingly buy, sell, or trade any service medal to any individual or organization. I understand your concern on how this bill could effect your ability to trade or sell service medals, and I believe that inefficient regulations that require unnecessary amounts of filing and red tape can be a huge burden. I admire your efforts to preserve historical memorabilia and stories from our veterans. Our veterans and service members have bravely served their country and deserve to be recognized and honored for their courage. Please be assured that I will keep your views in mind should this bill come before the full House of Representatives in the future. Thank you once again for taking the time to contact me. From time to time, I provide electronic updates on issues in which you might be interested. If you would like to receive my E-newsletter, please sign up on my website at http://bustos.house.gov. On my website you can also see my voting record, and get further information about the issues important to our district. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of any further assistance to you or your family. Kindest Regards, Cheri --
  6. I had never seen on either but I have some one ebay who bought one from swearing I sent him the medal not pictured. He thought it was a black one cause he looked a my first picture which showed the front of the medal and back of the ribbon bar which was silver and thought it was black but when I showed the back later one it was brass colored. thanks for your insight Brandyn
  7. Would the the Robbins company broach on the good conduct medal be the same color as the broach on the Robbins DSC? thanks Brandyn
  8. good article have to think what his wife went through 1st husband kia in ww1 second survived ww1 and wwii but died of cancer.
  9. try airing it out first sometimes a few days in fresh air helps alot. I just received a nice tank destroyer officers uniform and a navy uniform from a local antique dealer. They look fine but smell of must so badly so I was wondering what you guys do to get rid of that over powering smell safely?
  10. It is officially engraved. Officially engraved were not just for kia's but pows and wia just not many wia got engraved just not as often.
  11. this is probably him. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Flickinger&GSfn=George&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSob=n&GRid=143226466&df=all&
  12. I think it is wwii but with the broach and ribbon gone it is harder for me to tell from the pictures. A few other people might be able to answer that questions. The case for sure is wwii the engraving I do beleive to be post wwii.
