  4. If you have made it this far..... All the items below are what was split up from the group and what I am trying to obtain The two items I couldn't find pictures of are... His named full size medals Award plaques Named flightsuit white pilot helmet Really motivated to reunite group
  5. My largest pickup of recent times is the nearly complete USAF grouping of multi-war veteran Colonel Raymond E. Buckwalter. I obtained all of these items from another collector. He was able to pick all of this up about eight years ago on ebay, spare a few items. (which i'm on the lookout for btw). He was well known for his part in the Berlin airlift and all of the humanitarian missions he had flown after that. He was also commander of the 28th Bomb squadron when the famous b-29 "Command Decision" was operating. All of the units he commanded as well as dates are listed below. 8/49-10/4
  6. Another one of my recent pickups. Purchased this on E-bay where the seller said he got it directly from the estate. Named to a William A. Wineland Any info that could help would be outstanding. Thanks Jake
  7. Hey everybody!!! Last time I posted was in Feb. Just picked up a really nice WWI 5th Infantry division uniform Group from @Mr.Jerry at his store in Milwaukee. Need some help to ID this one. It has initials W. A. B. and the name BIll written in the pants. I've kind of hit a brick wall because World War one is not my expertise. Also I have never seen a blue rectangle underneath the rank chevrons before. Anybody know what that is? Any Info would be great. Thanks, Jake
  8. Thank you every body!! Special thanks Patches CNY (Justin) AZNation
  9. Ill be happy to get that picture for you and lawsuit is still any information, so thank you.
  10. Patches, Thank you for all your work helping me identify this colonel, It seems justin beat you too it! Col Edwards from what I gather was placed in an armored division right after the war and stayed there until his retirement. The bar underneath the reserve corps pin says "15 Years" (sorry for the bad photo quality) Thanks, Jake
