Pa NG Border Service Medal


Recommended Posts

Not sure if there is much interest in these, but I started compiling a list of these by number , I'm about 2/3 complete.  AFAIK there is not another source for this.  If you have one and need to know the recipient post your number and I will reply if I have info available, some of the numbers are very light, and some outright illegible so there will be gaps.

I have PA National Guard Border Service Medal 4241. It came in a group with a World War I Victory Medal with five bars, a World War 1 U.S. Service Medal from the citizens of Tacony, Phila PA, and Mexican Border Service Medal 12482 which traces to Harry Burns of West Philadelphia. I would love to know if the PA National Guard Border Service Medal also traces to Harry Burns. Thank you for any help you can give.

I have 14179.

  Sorry numbers above 130xx are rarely attributable, and may not have been issued.
