The following two photos are of the less commonly seen United Daughters of The Confederacy medals for military service.

This one is the Meritorious Service Medal for WWII, given to a service member that is a collateral (not lineal) descendant of a Confederate Soldier. As with all of these types, this, too, is numbered, and is annotated on the box.

This is the other UDC medal not commonly seen. It's the UDC National Defense Medal, awarded to those that have not deployed, but have served at least 90 days of continuous active duty.

Two Citadel-related groups. On the left is COL Meng's effects. He graduated from the Citadel in 1937, and was a fighter pilot in WWII, earning a Silver Star Medal for actions over New Guinea in 1942. Later he was a key figure in the meteorological "Project Thunderstorm" from 1945-1947.

On the right is COL McMurray, who graduated in 1909, and was the Commandant during WWII. He served 38 years in uniform.

Another recent find: AEF Identity Card . Carried by 1LT Francis W. Pratt, Adjutant, 117th Infantry Regiment, 30th Division.

1LT Pratt was cited for gallantry in GHQ, AEF Citation Orders Number 5, dated 3 June 1919:

"First Lieutenant Pratt distinguished himself by gallantry in action near Bellicourt, France, 29 September 1918, in running in front of a tank which was firing at them under the impression they were Germans, causing the tank operators to see their mistake and stop firing, thereby saving the lives of these officers and men."

The Dutch Commemorative Resistance Cross. Not a common award, and has been very difficult to find, having searched for a few years, finally got one last year.

The Dutch Commemorative Resistance Cross is important and relevant because 6 October 1982, it was awarded to 6 US Army Divisions for service in WWII, by The Netherlands Government. It was awarded to the 30th Infantry Division as well as to:

82nd Airborne Division

101st Airborne Division

2nd Armored Division

7th Armored Division

104th Infantry Division

It was given in appreciation of their participation in the liberation of The Netherlands in 1844 and 1945. This decoration was awarded symbolically to the units and the medal cannot be worn by individual US WWII servicemen. Only former members of the Dutch Resistance whom received the medal may wear it.

It's a keeper and will frame up well. I noticed that auto-correct changed to remark and the word is "remarque" which adds value to the print. Gregg

Neat little group to a soldier that was drafted into the army on 1 October 1918, and was still in training when the armistice was signed. He was discharged in December 1918.
