    I love the photos! You are so lucky to have those. If you can’t find your father’s medals, there are a myriad of websites (www.medalsofamerica.com, http://www.usamilitarymedals.com, etc.) that sell medals. It might be nice to frame one along with some of your photos. Thanks for the post!

    Hi Heather! Thanks so much for stopping by and for the wonderful compliment you made about my dad’s photos. You are right, I am so thankful that I have these photos and the few mementos from my father’s military days. Thanks so much for sharing those links and for the ideas too. I like the idea of creating a display in my dad’s honor . . . again thanks!

    Liv, if you can’t find the medals, he might not have gotten them.

    My step-granddad never got his Bronze Star while he was alive, even though it was awarded after his honorable discharge.

    Check out these posts in my blog:

    Since you have his separation papers, your Congressman could help you get them.

    Feel free to email me if you think that’s the case…

      You know, I never considered that dad never received those medals!! I did ask my brothers if they recall seeing them and they did not. Mom is not sure about those medals either. So thanks Dee for sharing that information and the links with me. I will definitely be heading over to your site to check them out and will let you know if indeed that is the case. Again, thank you!!!!
