Thinning the heard.......
« on: November 14, 2014, 08:29:45 AM »
I have a load of Navy, USMC, and Army engraved Purple Hearts up for trade. Most are single, but there are a few paired with other medals. I am looking for GOOD, SOLID, named or numbered Medal Groups in return.

Any Takers??

Hey LB,

Hi JS, I have a certain interest in 12th Air Force P-38 units, but I'm not sure I have anything to trade that you'd want.

That's good of you JS, and yes please. I'm guessing he was either 12th or 15th AF. Do you have the date of loss?.

Thanks,

Matt.
