Anyone Here Taking Care of Alexander Schaefer’s Posthumous Medals?


Recommended Posts

I saw a photo the above man’s posthumous Air Medal and Purple Heart online but could not locate the photo’s source.  Hopefully, someone here can point me in the right direction.  I came across a labeled Air Medal box that contained the engraved medal presented to his widow; I’d like to unite it back with the group- many thanks!

This is the first time that the researchers lifting photos of medals for their own use actually worked in our favor!  The medals showed up on one of those American Air Museum sites.  Glad it's getting reunited.

Kyle,

 

I think this is so cool that you would have made the effort to get the case reunited with the medal. Karma isn't always a B____! Good things will be coming your way I am sure.
