Swedish Immigrant, Span Am vet grouping

Recommended Posts

Recently found this grouping to Gustaf Sillen at a local antique mall. The medal rack and ribbon bars were being sold separately so I purchased them both. Researched the medals found they did infact to the the same individual as the ribbon bars. A couple of phone calls later and meeting with the seller. I have more items from the soldier.


Im still working on obtaining everything but the seller still has to go thru more boxes that she has. Her grandfather(if I remember correctly) knew Mr.Sillen and cleaned out his house when he passed away.


I apologize if my photos come out horrible as this is my first time posting on here. I found some musters draft cards on Ancestry and Fold3 so thats pretty neat.





Looking For Medals/Ribbons for :

John (Jack) Morse - WW2 Navy

John Bennett Smith - WW2 Navy & Pearl Harbor Survivor

Ralph Morse - WW2 US Army
