More from our good friend Tom on this newest LOM in my home.

Tom writes: LOM #7032 is traceable to 1st Sgt. Andrew C. Bichke, F/339 Inf Regt., 85th Division, ASN 6,810,832. His 6 million serial number indicates he was a career NCO with pre-WW2 service. The 85th fought only in Italy. It is only the second one found to be number traceable, out of the many requests from Forum members. In addition, an LOM to an enlisted man is rather scarce. Of the 20,273 US Army LOMs awarded for WW2, only 3114 or 15.4% were enlisted awards.

Here is a group of miniature medals with the LOM to Lt. Col. Lloyd W. Sterns. The group is in a Spink and Son Ltd. leather case. He was awarded the LOM along with the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus (the highest knightly order of Italy) and the Order of the Crown of Italy. The LOM is engraved with his initials. Lt.Col. Lloyd W. Stearns was Flag Lt. to the Commanding Officer of Allied Control Commission, Admiral Stone, in Italy.
