    The "Infamous" "Medal detective"

    I saw that one of his PH's he returned to the family (with press coverage of course) was sold on Ebay about two months later. He just doesn't get it.

    Night Stalkers recognized for valor

    I believe so. My Mother-In-Law mentioned his being decorated and the time frame is right. He is currently in Afganistan (again) only now I believe he is attached to the 101st AB.

    Interesting. My Brother-In-Law was a Night Stalker at that time.

    Vietnam Silver Star ,BS, PH Group

    Agreed. The BS is clearly an atta boy. The wording is intentionally left vague so that for all we know, he came up with a more efficient method of filing casualty reports. The SS would have been awarded for an act of valor.

  11. Jens, Nice star. The BB&B are the best. I have one ID'd by the number from early WWII.

    Combat Infantry Badge

    Travis, That one is very clean. I wouldn't say these are super rare. Keep a close eye on eBay and you will see them pop up every once in a while. Look closely, because I have seen these listed and nothing in the description mentioned it being two piece. I just happened to notice the separation.

    KIA purple heart North Africa

    Scott, This sure is a nice heart! I got the unit history, so when I get off my lazy duff, I'll do a little more looking. Just been too crazy a year for much research.
  14. Darrell, Nice! I was wondering who got this one.
