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. http://www.usamilitarymedals.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=world+war+II&gclid=CPzR2t7Rz6cCFcbd4AodhG3MEA

Thanks for sharing. I can't wait for my military man to come home. I think our soldiers could use some more respect and honor from us. Keep up the good work.
