  1. Sent to me by the Being corporate historian,via the curator at the Museum of Flight.
  2. This is Boeing employee merit ribbon awarded quarterly for attendance at 96.5% or better, given out quarterly at the Seattle and Renton plants. The aircraft portrayed is the B-29. The program was announced in Boeing News newsletter, May 3, 1945. Note that V-J day was August 15,1945, so these awards were not given out for very long. The silver stars were issue for successive quarter of good attendance, and gold stars for perfect attendance. It appears one of the stars shows gold in the un-worn areas between the points. I will attach the newsletter scan soon.
  3. A junk store find in Seattle from 20 years ago and am wondering if it is related to the Boeing war effort, transporting aircraft, or CAP. These appear to be the same size as the WW2 fat ribbons. The mounting bar is zinc plated clutch back
  4. Hello from Seattle. Your forum caught my eye while researching some family military service that included Union Army, Boer War, WW1, WW2, Korea, and Viet Nam. I am not a collector but have numerous odds and ends from my father's USN AWS assignments during the Cold War in Western Pacific from 1958 t0 1968. Abilene 10 was his call sign while aboard the CVS-10 USS Yorktown. A junk store find in Seattle from 20 years ago and am wondering if it is related to the Boeing war effort. These appear to be the same size as the WW2 fat ribbons. The mounting bar is zinc plated.
