My wife was helping her mom clean out the attic a while back and they came across some stuff that belonged to one of our silent heroes...her dad.



His service time fell very shortly after the Korean conflict.

Yes
JOKER, they were.
I have a few more pictures I'll post after I get finished struggling with photobucket.

And the best part I found tucked away in the left breast pocket.
I was most likely the first person to touch it since he dropped it in the pocket 60-some years ago.



He died on 2-25-2011 after a hard-fought battle against Alzheimers that lasted a little over a year.
