  1. Rolfi, Welcome to the forum. I knew that I had seen the Star & Ship insignia in the past but could not find it in the search of my references. John
  2. Jimmy, Thank you for that information. I will check it out myself. Best regards, John
  3. Robert, I see you have been staying busy tracking down the WWI 82nd Division Purple Hearts. I will have to take a look at your web site. Thanks for sharing. John
  4. Jimmy Thanks for the reply. It is a good looking medal and better than the current medals the army issues. John
  5. Very nice pictures of a early French made Distinguished Service Medal. I have to admit the quality is near perfect. Does the medal rotate in a similar manner as the American made version. Thanks for posting.

  9. Thanks for all the comments folks, they are much appreciated. The wings are marked sterling, I assume the set given at graduation from jump school. I found that Roy's wife posted his WW2 Service on the WWII memorial: https://www.wwiimemorial.com/Registry/plaque.aspx?honoreeID=92376
  10. Awesome way to continue the legacy of a man who was a hero in war and peace. Thanks for posting.
  11. How ever after looking at the traditional VFW Card; I dug a little deeper in the folds found this very thin onionskin document from his time in the occupation forces of Germany.
  12. At first glance, I saw this wallet with the hand-painted 17th Airborne Division as a one of a kind souvenir of World War Two paratroopers memory of his combat service.
