Post your miniature medals.

1 GCM implies not much more than one contract enlisted, especially in that era. I know of only one highly decorated Marine who did 20 years enlisted and earned only a single GCM...decades before WWII

That makes two of us, how is the project progressing?

Here's my latest pick up. Unifentified

Nice group. I'm leaning towards a Marine Corps General Officer, Naval Aviator who probably flew helicopters. I say helicopters due to the two Navy /Marine Corps Medals. Just a guess. Have read of helicopter pilots being awarded in Vietnam for non combat life saving missions.

Nice find, that is one heck of set of awards.

 

Always looking for uniquely marked helmets, WWI and WWII American Field Service items, WWII and earlier USMC items and named or numbered medals and medal groups.

Thanks for the info gentlemen. I got these with a large group of Marine stuff from the Palm Springs area. The uniforms were all from the 80s and to an enlisted Marine. These were in a bag along with other insignia and aviation wings.

I got a good deal on the whole lot and these weren't even shown in the picture

Don't want to leave out the Air Force. USAF Vietnam, Defense Meritorious Service, Air Force Commendation Medal mini group. "If you can't stitch, glue will do."

 

While the Meritorious Service Medal (MSM) is awarded by all services, it is not a "Defense" Meritorious Service Medal (DMSM). The DMSM is a joint service award and is different.

Just got this today -- from the uniform of Admiral James Holloway, Jr.

 

Can anyone identify the medal on the far right?

Nice set of miniature medals. I think I have a pic of his full size somewhere in my collection. Are they original or you able to get them made?

Thanks for the ID! These are Holloway's originals sewn on to his mess dress uniform. I would love to see a pic of his full size awards!

So you're the one that outbid me for the admiral uniform! I'm happy at least it went to a fellow member. Absolutely stunning rack!
