37th ID 145th IR BSM winner’s uniform group and album


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Recently picked up this group from vets nephew on eBay. His uncle was a pre-war member of the 145th IR 2nd BN HQ Company and served as a lineman. He made all of the 37th ID major campaigns, and earned a BSM as a member of a litter bearer team during the fighting in Tacloban during the Leyte Campaign. The photo album was a big surprise, and contains some awesome shots, many originals along some period souvenir/ press release photos. 
 

 Hope you all enjoy!

A really solid one Ben, glad you were able to pick it up, not an easy division to find and such a nice grouping.
