9. KSA named to PTE Gentry. I plan on getting some research done on this one. Something must have happened that his rank dropped.

More nice stuff, & you're psoting as you aquire these medals rather than posting what you've already got in your collection?

Have you got a QSA / KSA mine in your back yard?
