Own? Yes. Buy, sell, trade? Doubtful, since people could still wear them and claim it

BG Steve Chappius of Batle of the Bulge fame. Here is his dress mess and mini medals.

Are you sure about Chappuis? For his actions in Ops Market Garden he earned my countries highest bravery award,, the Militaire Willemsorde 4th class. In this group i see an Officer in the Order of Oranje nassau, which is far more common and not connected to bravery in the field.

Great bar! Probably worn by an Army Reserve Colonel. (Total guess on that.) To begin to even think about IDing him, you'd need to know what state he was from to have a remote chance. However, I don't see any state medals on there.

In any case, that is a really nice group of miniatures.

There you go. You could get lucky with the right photo in a Washington Nat'l Guard unit history (if such a thing exists). Possibly 1950's?
