Thank you all! I am so proud of my family and their service to our country. I’m working on frames for my Dad’s and Father-in Law’ s service. I’m so happy to have them still here with me.

I see your grandfather was a member of the 98th Infantry Division, an interesting unit in my opinion. Do you have a 98th Infantry Division patched uniform?

No I don’t, wish I did. :) He was in Hawaii training for the invasion of Japan when the atomic bomb was dropped. He did go to Japan as an occupation force.

That is a very nice display. Looks absolutely professional! And there's nothing like having items from the own family!
