Thank you, yes I did find this bit of info. But thats it so far. The grouping came directly from his widow before she passed away. She took it to a great shop in Columbus Georgia, right next to Ft. Benning, Columbus Armory, David Brady is the owner operator.

David is an exemplary guy with years of experience and knowledge. Ive been privileged to know him as a friend for 20 years.

 

Thank you for the information!!

He is on the 2d Ranger Co. roster for Korea. His enlistment (reenlistment in 1946 as a Corporal) record shows 1920 birth year. I do not see a Morse that received the DSC. I suspect the gravestone may not be correct for some reason?

 

A very nice group with an excellent showcase in career progression from SFC up to Sgt Maj on those green uniforms. The 2d Company connection makes it a real gem.
