Named Soldier's Medal for Review

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I've been attempting to identify the recipient of this Soldier's Medal. Based on my research, I believe it to be Post-WW2 officially engraved, but I'm not for certain, as it seems the Soldier's Medals were engraved in a wide variety of styles (based on posts in this forum). I did also find that there were several "Hugh P. Cox" that served during WW2, but nothing indicating any won the SM. My questions are:

-Legit official engraving? Period?

-Anyone know any other resources for research on Solider's Medals? ( I saw someone here had amassed a list of over half the recipients with their citations, but now I can't find the post...)


Thanks for the help in advance!

The engraving looks fine. I'd look for a recipient who earned it between 1950 and the end of the 1970s.

Hi Dave,


Thanks for the confirmation. This is proving to be a difficult task. Looks like I may have to shelve it for a few decades and hope more information is released.


Thanks again!
