    Pennsylvania National Guard Medal


    Recommended Posts

    Unfortunately, the WWI Service Medals are not named or numbered. However, Pennsylvania has done a great service by digitizing their Mexican Border Service and WWI cards (among other tings) and posting them on their web site:


    The MBS cards often have the medal number; the WWI cards have enlistment, promotions, units, etc. Both are very handy to research Pennsylvania veterans.

    It should be noted that there are 2 versions of the WWI Pennsylvania Medal - The National Guard version (pictured) has "PNG" in the Keystone at the lower obverse - However there was a scarcer Federal Service version for Soldiers, Sailors, & Marines who were not members of the National Guard - This Federal version has a five pointed star in the Keystone at the lower obverse
