Picked these off eBay sell had 31 certificates for crazy money all listed separately. I made offers of the 5 most important in my eyes ?

the rest OLC awards for AM.

 

I am leaning toward him being original Airmobile with the dates ? But could also be 

Early 101st airborne ?

not finding much other that he enlisted 1952 retired 1972 and died 1997 

he was African American 

thankful for 

any help on unit ?

also believe these are earlier Heroism BS documents .

so I assume a BS with V ?

29 air medals

Only thing I found on him 

map matches date on BS for 1st Airmobile but 

sure could be 101st ?

so by the C W Eifler signature he was 1st logistical command . now was he a crew chief or a door gunner  on a helicopter ? How would he have 3 bronze stars for heroism for ground combat in 1st logistical ? most other documents I have are signed by commander of there units . so by signature he would be 1st logistical .

Picked up from same seller ! 2nd AM olc and 3rd OLC certificates with the dates that coincide with IA Drang ! I still feel this guy was Airmobile but can’t find anything on him ?

I have been informed he was most likely in a MACV unit originally with the Westmorland signature on his 1st 5 air medal documents and then 1st logistical after 1965 ? Guess only way is to get his file from NARA .

There is a special place " you know where" for people that split up a document group like this. Glad you were able to keep part of it together.

I saw them on EBay too. The seller is crazy to try and get that much for each one,
