Question:  Based on my uncle's discharge certificate I am trying to determine what some of his medals were. Looking for some guidance on where to look for images of the medals.


Answer: I have had this question once before.  The child of the veteran used this to assemble to missing medals for a shadow box for her dad.  I hope this website will also assist you.  It offers images and descriptions of the honors the veteran was bestowed for obtaining the medal.
