help with Iding awards

Recommended Posts

I have numbered the awards 1-8. I know 2 of them.

1. Red Star


3. Red Banner of Labor






He fought in WWII with the 1159th Howitzer Artillery Regiment and the 173rd Howitzer Artillery Brigade. Any help in Iding the awards is greatly appreciated. He was alive in 1978.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
