    Hi Guys,
    Have to use a little humor on this one as my wife grandfather was also there and died in 1955 from cancer. Of course at the time no one would dare say it was from the bomb.

    anyway
    This is part of a large Vet medal and Dc lot its a pretty cool set however this stands out.
    The records show he was over there for the first shot or two and came home, he was part of a maintence squadron.
    Died 1953 in VA hospital of cancer.
    I haven't found any real example of this and wanted to share
    Regards
