It's been a while since I have posted on this forum, but I have been collecting in the meantime.
I recently found this small medal and insignia grouping on Ebay at a very attractive price.
Although this is post-WWII (from the GRACO GI hallmark I would think 70's - 80's) government reissue set, it is the story behind them that got me hooked.
T5 Robert Posey landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day + 1 (his unit was actually supposed to land on June 6 but got pushed back until the next day), and served with the A battery, 447th AAA AW.
This battalion was attached to the 110th IR, 28th ID, which operated M16 half-tracks equipped with quad .50s and fought in Normandy, Huertgen, Rhineland, Ardennes (Bastogne), and Central Europe.
At first I was surprised that there was no CIB with the set, but I assume he wasn't eligible for one since his wasn't in an infantry role?
Either way, I thought this was a great, affordable grouping and I wanted to share it with you.
