I'd like to see the actual service record and Awards Record Card pages--

he does not seem to have been assigned outside of Irkutsk from the 1920s--

so how on earth did he qualify for the Victory Over Germany Medal? Troops in the Soviet Far East 1941-45 only got the Victory Over Japan.

His service says he was never actually at any front, so the hospital must have wandered around in the lines of communications and crossed whatever the invisible frontier was allowing for the VoG. Very interesting.

Sounds like a nice group. Can you show his medals??

Hallo Ed,

I only have the research for my book...no gongs. Rick, I'll try to get them posted by tomorrow. I have a family situation that I have to go to California for two weeks to take care of Mom (post-op) and Dad (Parkinson's). I'm working out the details of when Mom needs me there.
