  1. I was there with PATFORSWA in 2003 and 2004.
  2. Not frequently encountered items. Nice finds.
  3. Thanks Chris. That's 30 years worth so far. Another 14 planned, although I don't think there are many additional new medals that can be added. It's been a fun career. I absolutely love the work and ability to contribute to the bigger picture.
  4. Here is my updated bar. My previous post in this thread was nine years ago. A few changes since then. 30 years and running! I am very proud and honored. For my branch, the MSM is a Command Master Chief / O6 Commanding Officer level award.
  5. I love this combinaiton of awards. As a collective, not so common. I think it will be impossible to nail it down to a unit/individual though- right? There are no numbers on the minis?
  6. What a spectacular group. Did they have copies of the award citation? I bet his NARA record has some amazing things in it!
  7. I absolutely love this helmet. Outstanding find.
  8. I enjoy seeing this group! Worthy of another reply. Your grandfather is a hero! Paul
  9. Super cool item. I've never seen one before. Nice find and research.
  10. I'd personally engrave them. I will have my personal awards MSM and below engraved on my medal bar, with the dates and units. It is not like they are collector's items. The font is not important either. It is not like we are trying to pass them off as period pieces.
  11. Dave, How many CG Purple Hearts are profiled in your book? Paul
  12. From what was said above, it seems as if the medals could've been his. The rest is garbage.
  13. When I was deployed to the Dulles Intl Airport in 2014 (Oct) to assist the PHS with Ebola prevention screenings on certain international flights, I remember seeing this rank in use. EDIT: Yep- current use. http://www.uniforms-4u.com/p-us-public-health-service-quarantine-hard-shoulder-boards-19278.aspx
