    I wish I could afford to buy them, an awe inspiring group steeped in history. A shame that his family don't want to keep them. I notice he has MID's from both wars that are not mentioned, wow.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I feel it's a family members' duty to ensure the safe keeping of things like this. Regardess of whether or not the grandchildren of this soldier actually want the items or not, they should at least hold onto them in case their future children would be interested in having them

    I don't like it but I understand.
    If his children have now desire at all in hanging onto the group
    then maybe it's better they get sold to a collector.

    Years ago, my first boss was a ww2 vet. Serving in the 3rd Army
    including Bastone. He told me that he wanted to give me his
    souvenirs because his kids had no interest what so ever.

    Maybe I missed it but is there a link to the auction house?

    Adrian had a link to the article. I just Googled the auction house name. Didn't find the grouping on their site, though.
