ID'd Merrill's Marauder & Later General Officer Group

Recommended Posts

Just picked up this interesting group from the family.  It belonged to Major General Milton Pilcher, in 2017 he was the oldest surviving member of Merrill's Marauders and passed away at the age of 100. Includes 6 uniforms (almost all named to him), named visor and Bancroft baseball cap, Major General flag, named Legion of Merit medal, named Bronze Star, WW2 boxed medals, ton of pins, garrison caps, copy of his service record and history with articles etc.  Most is related to his post WW2 service but one garrison cap is named to him as 2nd Lt.  Even includes a DVD copy of his funeral at Arlington National Cemetery. Too much to list, will let the pictures to the talking. Also includes a numbered China WW2 War Service medal and a copy of Spearhead about Merrill's Marauder's (Milton is actually the guy standing up in the picture on the cover).  A little outside my area of collecting but thought I would share this cool piece of history.
