  1. That's my guy Don. Another medal roll had him as "Auger" as did his USMA cadet document. Thanks for your deductive talents.
  2. Hello to all, I am researching a recent medal acquisition and am hoping a member with the rolls can help me. Name: Jacob A. Auger He was an officer in the cavalry in the Western Territories. Regards, Doug
  3. Hi Guys, I just listed some PH items on eBay and Mr. Do-gooder just sent me this message: New message from: jpdls3979 (298) Good day, Being a 35yr Army Vet and Purple Heart recipient myself and though other Sellers list PH and other medals. Curious if you're aware of eBay's Policy found under "Government Documents, I.D.'s, and Licenses" category where it specifically addresses what medals are not allowed to be listed? And Yes I ask the same question to Other Sellers that list them and don't discriminate against anyone and that these listings may be Reported. Respectfully, J.P. Reply I'm going to ignore him. I'll let you know what happens.
  4. Wanted to make a correction. The lot sold for $850 and not $900.
  5. The group sold for $900. I was not the winner. The GC medal was not engraved.
  6. Out of my league. https://www.ebay.com/itm/WW-II-PURPLE-HEART-MEDAL-WITH-RELATED-MEDIC-PAPER-EPHEMERA/152794052002?hash=item23933c35a2:g:-P4AAOSwH2VaEbKK
  7. From the United Daughters of the Confederacy Cross of Military Service Electronic Listing (found on the forum). 2847 (SC) SGT Onas P. Parkman. Camp Shelby, MS. The ribbon bar precedence is out of order. Should be NMCCM, ADM, ACM. My queries are: If the ADM is a Coast Guard issue would it not have a SEA clasp? Why a NMCCM vice a Coast Guard Commendation medal? No campaign medals, so stateside service? So, is this a WWII Navy group with post war Coast Guard service?
  8. RM2 Mulkey would have been eligible for the PUC, had he in fact been attached to shore billet during the campaign. The problem is finding the documentation to prove it. You would have to have a service record entry saying he was transferred TAD to a specific unit on the island during the campaign.
  9. The picture may have been taken before the PUC for Iwo Jima was awarded, meaning the single star on the PUC in the picture is for the Saipan - Tinian invasion.
  10. Hi, at some point, what I have noticed is that the Marine Corps stopped issuing the "ENLISTMENT" type bars and started issuing the "AWARD" bars. Maybe just prior to WWII. The Marine corps "AWARD" bars are pin back and engraved on the obverse. The reverse is blank. The Navy "AWARD" bars are the slip on type and have raised lettering. Awarding of enlistment bars ended in 1953. http://www.foxfall.com/gcrm-usmc.htm

  12. navy marine corps medal

  13. I think the 3 awards on the same date are separate actions. Frank R Aiello USMC received his medal for bravery on the North River, New York City, NY. The rescue took place in 1940.
