WWI NY State Service Medals

Yes it is possible to id veterans who received NY Medals for SPANAM, WWI Service, and WWI home service. The Orders and Medals Society of America or OMSA has two volumes dedicated to the New York medals: https://www.omsa.org/books-sale-members/

For Merit, Service, and Valor: A History of Some New York Military Decorations and Awards and their Recipients (1915-1983) Vol. I and II.

By: Doug Boyce, Gary Hartman, and Nick McDowell.

That said there are so many gaps and mixed issues dates it is often discouraging at best.  LMK the medal # and I will see if it is listed in one of the volumes. However, if this is an ongoing project you may want to purchase a set for your own references.

Best regards,

John

No luck on who received medal 20921; There is a large gap between 20696 and 20955. You will note other gaps and the medals were issued in 1921. Do you have any info on where the medal came from?

Hi John, the NY state medal came with a very small grouping of items, that included a WWI Victory Medal, a pair of WWI dog tags, an “AEF” lapel pin, and a couple of other smalls.  

 

I was trying to determine if the NY medal and the dog tags were to the same soldier, or had been put together over time.

 

Thank you again Sir.
