  1. Odd, I still see it under Decorations. Perhaps it is my computer.
  2. Shouldn't this tread be in Americans in Foreign Service?
  3. I am guessing the "four bronze stars" are campaign/battle stars and the "two silver stars" are the citation stars on his Victory Medal. Interesting way of saying it. I guess thoughts how the Great War generation thought of it.
  4. Is the ribbon below the Bronze Star the China Service Medal?
  5. Boiler plate legal document to assist in limiting government liability if one of these dogs attacked someone and the owner blamed the military training they had received.
  6. Yes, one of those two. Smith & Wesson revolvers are categorized by frame size. "K" is one of those sizes. Basically the 38 special and 357 magnum revolvers most policemen carried before 1990 were "K" frame models (model 10, 13, 15, 16, 19, 64, 65, 66 & 67).
  7. I agree about the serial numbers. I believe all of these are out of the serial number range of the Model 56s the USAF had at the time.
  8. I apologize; I didn't catch "troop". Perhaps he was trained at Ft Knox as a cavalry scout. They use the term troop. As for the purpose of the award I believe it was given out to the best marksman in the training company/troop.

Naylor-Foote, Department of Infectious Diseases, School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, Calif., USA.
  12. It is a 5 page article published in the Journal of Pharmaceutical Science. It was published in the August 1957 issue. It appears to be a study/experiment on using iodine as a disinfectant. The study/experiment was made by the Los Angeles County Health Department. There was not any bio information on the contributing authors.
  13. From Wikipedia but I believe this is accurate. Public Law 88-77, July 25, 1963: The requirements for the Medal of Honor were standardized among all the services, requiring that a recipient had "distinguished himself conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty." Thus, the act removed the loophole allowing non-combat awards to Navy personnel. The act also clarified that the act of valor must occur during one of three circumstances: While engaged in action against an enemy of the United States While engaged in military operations invol
