Hi everybody,

 

A few weeks ago I have bought a WWII Legion of Merit Medal with the certification of Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster in lieu of a Second Award from a fellow forum member.

 

The medal and the certification belonged to Brigadier General Kenneth F. Zitzman with a date of 31 July 1959. While browsing the internet to find some information on Kenneth F. Zitzman I have found an eBay listing with a photo of him taken at the day of ceremony when the First Oak Leaf Cluster was presented.

 

I found it a great miracle that earlier I bought his Legion of Merit and the certification and later I found a matching photo of the presentation day showing him receiving the Oak Leaf Cluster and the document I currently preserving in my collection.

 

I instantly sent a message to the seller to inquire about the possible international shipping options explaining that I would like to reunite the photo of Brigadier General Kenneth F. Zitzman with his Legion of Merit and certification. He totally refused to send me the picture even though I tried to convince him that I would pay every cost regarding the international mailing.

 

I found this really sad as I know that I am not a US citizen but I am trying to preserve and keep together a part of history with reuniting the photo with the medal group I currently own. Is there any chance that somebody would be able to help me getting this picture? I would pay for every cost regarding the delivery.

 

Here is the link for the eBay listing: http://ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1959-B-W-Phototograph-Legion-Merit-Presentation-To-BG-Kenneth-F-Zitzman-/362374120342

 

Any help is highly appreciated!

 

Many thanks,

Bence

Looking for Cuban Pacification Medal #1207 to Captain Fred B Hoyt. I know that this particular medal was split from the group about 12 years ago at the OMSA convention at San Jose. I would love to reunite the medal to his grouping. I believe that he also had a Mexican Campaign, Dominican Campaign, possibly an Expeditionary medal for Haiti. His service file is not helpful on other medal numbers so any leads would be appreciated. Regards, Geoff

To whom it may concern:

I am attempting to locate the World War I Purple Heart that was awarded to Pvt. Louis Kother. He was my grandfather and was wounded at the Battle of Belleau Wood. Tom Leonard had once owned it, and he wrote a marvelous history of that battle on this forum's website, for which I am grateful. He no longer has it and cannot recall who owns it now. I would love to buy it back. If the current owner is interested in selling this to me, you may contact me as follows:

 

The Rev. Russell C. Sullivan, Jr.

4385 Roth Farm Village Circle

Mechanicsburg, PA 17050

phone: (717) 580-2011

e-mail: parsonrussell0916@gmail.com

 

Here's hoping someone reads this!

 

Always,

Looking to reunite SGT Edward J Horn’s medals with his uniform. Unfortunately they were split up, or so I’m told. The GCM is named to him but unfortunately the PH & SSM are not. I’m hoping they aren’t scattered to the wind and the history lost.

 

Here’s a photo from 2016 when they were together.

Trying to reunite this with a large grouping. Thanks

Still looking
