  4. I just saw this eBay. I thought the government kept these?
  5. I have been the family military historian for over 45 yrs. I started at age 10. Over time I have been collecting stories, pictures, discharge papers, certificates, medals, ribbons, insignias, paperwork, manuals, etc. With that said, some family says no, you can't have it. I understand fully. I do make copies or photos of things I can't have. Also, some family has allowed me to get the Veteran's medals/ ribbons replacement set with signed consent from the Veteran or the Next Of Kin. On replacement sets, the government had found more awards. I have 3 types of categories in my archives. 1st the a
  6. Someone on Facebook told me a different way to display JBG WWII 101st Airborne Medals. I agree. The new look is much better.
  7. A new addition to GOD DUTY COUNTRY Veterans Display is Great Uncle Lt. Col. Thomas Joseph Brennan, US Army, WWII Veteran. He was the Trainmaster Commander for the 732nd Railway Operating Battalion in Europe. Making sure tracks are restored, trains running, etc. to support General Patton's 3rd Army. Thomas and Patton were the first Americans to cross the Rhine River in a German train supporting the front lines. I want to thank Becky Brennan Lowe, daughter, of Thomas for these items and copied documents for my GDC archive.
  8. UPDATE: Here is John B. Goodman's 101st Airborne, Service Company, Awards and Decorations on how they will be placed in a shadow box. They will be permanently mounted after the Silver Star ceremony at Joint Lewis McChord. Then displayed at GOD DUTY COUNTRY Veterans Display for all to see.
  9. I scanned 2 pictures. Top from a camera and bottom from a newspaper. Web online joined together. This is the result. I can take pictures separate for you and email to you to join together and fix any problems.
  10. I joined 2 pictures together. The bottom one is from a newspaper. The actually image is 848kbs. It's here smaller so I can post it. I can send it to your personal email. Thanks, Mark
  11. Hello Everyone...I just posted awhile ago about Thomas Brennan's Bronze Star Medal on another category. I am asking a big favor here. I know some of you members are proficent with Photoshop. Can someone "fix" this photo especially the crease on the bottom half. Keep the original colors. I would like to print this and give it as a gift to some. Either PM with results or share your work here. I thank you so much. It means a lot to me.
  12. Thank you for the wealth of information and taking the time to research his military service via newspapers. His record is burned in St. Louis.
  13. Can someone help me find a document with Order and number for a Bronze Star Medal awarded to WWII Veteran, Major (later at Lt. Col.) Thomas J. (Joseph) Brennan. O 539 479, 732nd Railway Operating Battalion. He has no CIB. His Report Of Seperation has no Bronze Star. Yet, I have seen it and it is engraved. He died later after the war. The family sent for set for a replacement set of Awards and Decorations. No CIB or Bronze star arrived. Wrong birthday and wrong unit on his Report Of Seperation as well. So that is my mystery. Thank you for any information.
  14. Thanks for your input. I keep everything how the government did it. I also have military records for my family's members. Either original, copies, and/or National Archives. Things that need to be corrected, I'll contact the proper channels.
