Questions & Comments
Lol, sorry, didn't mean any offense. I just couldn't believe anyone would want to part with this! Can't believe his daughter wouldn't want the medal her father earned in combat! My grandmother worked for the Army records center for many years, looking into cases where a veteran's family sought out certificates and medals awarded to their loved ones, and the Purple Heart and Bronze and Silver Stars are basically the highest honors given (besides Congressional Medal of Honor). Awesome listing, though! I may have to check my budget ;-)

yeah its sad how some people remember others but ive seen them on ebay for as little as ten bucks and grew up to seeing them every once in a while in flea markets and gun shows sometimes being sold by the original owner

Lmao oh no I'm a little to young for the Korean war. I get paid to haul away peoples unwanted junk. Sometimes I find some interesting things. This was in a framed picture. Along with some other medals. The glass was smashed. And it was the daughter of the guy who earned them. He died in the 70s and she was selling her house.

I actually kinda understand the original owner wanting to be rid of them- we don't give our veterans enough respect or assistance, so they go wherever, risk their lives, get injured, come home and get a piece of brass and a "thank you & eff you", have trouble finding work, get inadequate medical and mental health care. I don't blame them a bit for wanting no part of it. But often that piece of brass is all a family has left of them, so they usually like to hang on to them...but one person's trash, right?
