  1. Thank you Sir. I thought as much but had not heard that term used before. If this is a fake, it is very good.
  2. WOW........ After all this time this thread is still great!!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Just catching up on many old threads. Wanted to say this is a very nice, and well researched heart. Congrats.
  6. Interesting. My Brother-In-Law was a Night Stalker at that time.
  7. 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.
  8. Jens, Nice star. The BB&B are the best. I have one ID'd by the number from early WWII.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Darrell, Nice! I was wondering who got this one.
  12. Scott, I have one for: 1st Lieutenant Gordon E. Burt 21st Cavalry Recon Troop Americal Division KIA at Leyte February 14, 1945 Killed by enemy landmine. Let me know what else you find out about your guy. Jim
  13. Scott, Your Pacific collection is really growing. Some very impressive hearts here.
  14. VERY Nice. I have a KIA from Americal that was killed on Luzon.
  15. Scott, Just a suggestion, but I would have Tom Lane look at this one.
