  1. Thank you. But, Maggie's drawers. No joy. I found two guys with his name and they are both way too young. This friend was a Naval Aviator in the '80s. He flew Hoovers, S-3 Vikings. Thanks, anyway. Marko
  2. Hello friends, I would like to see if I can find an old friend. He was a Navy Pilot back in the '80s. Does anyone know where I might look to possibly find him? Best regards, Mark Admins: If this doesn't belong here, delete with my understanding.
  3. I have been interested in the Identification Badge of the Tomb of the Unknown. I am very interested in all information this thread might offer for my learning experience as well. The is a picture of the fronts of the badges I have in my collection.

  5. Second picture, top right. 23rd Quartermaster Regiment, I think.
  6. WOW !!! What an incredible treasure, for sure. Thank you for sharing this.
  7. I am trying to locate a source for an embroidered petty officer rank insignia to go onto a Navy Digital Blue cover. I am not concerned with the specific rank; whether it be PO3, PO2, or PO1. Is there anyone who can direct me to a source where I can acquire such an insignia? Best regards, Marko The picture shows the type of rank insignia I am looking for and how I intend to display it. I already have a cover. Just need the rank patch.
  8. Thank you all for your most valuable input. From what I am discerning, the drape medal with the Commander device is most likely an award to a foreign recipient. I appreciate the quick and valuable replies. Best regards, Marko
  9. I found this medal in a group of individual medals for sale; elsewhere here on the internet. It is a Legion of Merit drape medal with the same device worn on the Legion of Merit - Commander grade ribbon bar. I have been a collector since the late '60s (off and on) and I have never seen this combination of medal and device ever used. Subsequently, I can find no reference ever allowing this combination to be used. But, I am an imperfect being and am not omniscient. Has anyone ever seen this combination of medal and device ever used? Does anyone know if this IS an approved combi
  10. I have bought a bunch of things from crazyzac over the last year. I feel vey pleased with everything I have gotten from him. The patches I have gotten from him are exactly as I expected and are exactly the same as those gotten from friends currently serving. Metal insignia and medals make up my dealings with him and I look forward to dealing with him again. I certainly appreciate this dialog and have learned some good things along the way.
  11. Sorry for the delay. Here are pics of the creased ribbon on a medal.
  12. Hello all, I have a bit of a conundrum. I have a few medals in my collection that have very firm creases in their ribbon drapes, I presume are the result of being stored for extended periods of time. My question I would like to ask others to field is: Is there a safe way to iron out the folds, or should I replace them completely?. Additionally, and as a follow-up question: I have a medal (very old) which has a ribbon drape that is disintegrating. Is there a benefit to preserve it as it is? And, if so, how best should I preserve it? Side note: Please be assured
  13. Michael Rolf, Thank you for all your effort and diligence. It is most appreciated; by many more than me, I am sure. Thanks again, Marko
  14. I have just discovered the web page http://www.scribd.com/doc/67093643/Mottos-A-Z has been deleted. If someone has any online links to a motto list, I am sure there are many folks here who would appreciate the additional information. Best regards, Marko
