Iwo Jima Purple Heart

Recommended Posts

Due to current events I can’t do my usual deep dive into research. Big thanks to the forum members, they know who they are.

I’m going to post in the latest acquisition forum and when I’m able to do a thorough post, I’ll post it in the medals section.

Charles Vern Case was born April 7, 1923 to his parents Charles and Bernice Case of Elkhart, Indian. As a Marine with 28th Marine Regiment, 5th Marine Division, Case was involved with the fighting on Iwo Jima. On the night of March 1-2, 1945, Case left his foxhole and disappeared somewhere in the vicinity of Hill 362A.

Wanted: Missouri Medals

 

I am always in search of Missouri Medals and Items. This could be anything from WW1, WW2, Prisoners of War, Ephemera, or anything pertaining to Missourians.

 

I thank you for your time and consideration.
