    Hello everyone,

    I am new to the site and I will be back and forth on researching information to various items overall. This one particular medal has me very curious and I am interested in receiving some information that will help me overall with things in the future.

    Trying to gather information on this medal….

    Is it War related? Commendation? Any information would be very helpful, please and thanks!
