Reuniting Broken Medal Groups

Recommended Posts

Just a quick update. I'm now looking for both named Purple Heart and Air Medal for 2LT Morris D. Rosenthal. I have gotten a photo of the airplane and crew, Rosenthal is the 4th from the right.

I've picked up a cased Air Medal and I'm displaying it with the uniform, 20th AF patch and 2" bombardier wings. The uniform has been almost completely restored, just waiting on the arrival of the proper ribbons (thanks Mark!). The B-29 model is going to be a while in the works, but should be a knockout when finished!

 

If anyone's got any information on these two medals, PLEASE let me know!

 

Thanks!

Hello,

 

I am looking for my father's Pre WWII Navy Good Conduct Medal named to Derrell Eugene Shepherd on back no date. It has two bars 2nd Award and 3rd Award. It maybe in the Kansas City area, where a person working at the old King's Crown store acquired it from me without my knowledge.

SILVER STAR, INDIAN WARS, SPANISH CAMPAIGN MEDALS

 

Belonging to Ernesto V. Smith. Looking to reunite the group.

 

Silver Star is probably a low numbered BBB as awarded to a RA Colonel (Retired) in the 1930's for gallantry in the Philippines in 1901.

 

No listing for Indian Wars or Spanish Campaign medals on the No. rolls. He participated as a Regular Officer in both wars.

 

thanks,

I'm looking for the followng:

Purple Heart and Certificate issued to the NOK for my Uncle Joseph A. Zapotoski, ASNo 33609104, PFC Company B, 105 Infantry Regiment, 27th Infantry Division KIA 19 April 1945 on Okinawa.

 

Purple Heart, issued to NOK for Arther E. Chambers, ASNo 34124700, PFC Company K 347th Infantry Regiment, 87st Infantry Division KIA February 28, 1945. I have his PH Certificate issued to his NOK. I am looking for anything else related to him, his service and death in battle.

 

Purple Heart issued to Albert Monkman PVT Battery D, 6th F.A. WIA WWI. I have his Columbia Accolade issued for his wound in action along with his portrait painted overseas and a picture of him in his American Legion Uniform along with his quite a few of his American Legion pins and medals along with wall hanger plate commemorating his service in WWI with Battery D, 6th F.A., 1st Division

 

Silver Citation and Silver Star Citation for Edward P. Rankin Jr, and any medals and information about this service. I have his SS No 2XXX with an Oak Leaf Cluster but no other information. I assume he served in WWI or earlier. I acquired the medal through the Seattle Salvation Army on eBay a couple of years ago.

 

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

 

Regards,

 

John

I have the KIA PH Award certs for PFC Harold E. Markland, KIA Oct. 13, '43, of Dearborne County, Indiana, and PFC John J. Kilian KIA Oct 25 1944.

I've had these for years and have no idea where medals may be. Would be nice to get them back with any other extant artifacts of these forever young soldiers.

Looking for anything relating to Bruce D. Mckown. I know a trunk with his name, two named medals and some uniforms and papers were sold on here a few months ago. He was from Madison, WI. and was KIA in Korea. I live just south of Madison, WI and recently came across a uniform belonging to Mckown and would love to add any other items of his (like the Pruple Heart and Bronze Star medal) to my collection. If you purchased these items form MWalsh and would consider parting with some or all of the items, please let me know. Thanks, Keith

Looking for the medals (and uniforms) of my uncle, Brig Gen W. Skaer, USAF. Should include the AF DSM, DFC, AM, Am Camp, PTO, WW2 Victory, NDSM...there may be others, but I am not certain what they are. I know there were several South American awards as well, but I don't have the names available.

 

Last I knew, they were all given away to a thrift store in Texas approximately 25 years ago.

 

Thanks
