Have you thought of publishing an article on the occupation medals of the Philippines?  It appears that you have quite a lot of info not available in current published sources.

Hi Mr. Paul, about the publishing I have no much connection to the book writers. My only contact is Mr. Earl Honeycutt, I just send some images and info to him about the unknown medal that are not seen in reference books and also help him for his 2nd edition which will be done for the next 2 to 3 years i think.

Very impressive - both the medals and the accompanying information.  You might consider cntacting OMSA - Orders and Medals Society of America - to see whether they have more information and /or whether they are interested in publishing an article on these medals if you are interested in writing one.  [ http://www.omsa.org/ ]

Hi Sir Peter Monahan, thank you for the information and appreciation. I'll try to contact the OMSA if they are interested in publishing an article about those medals.

 

Thank you
