Hello everyone, i picked this up the other day from an old friend of mine. this Bronze Star Purple Heart group belong to Sargent Joseph J. McMahon, he landed on Omaha beach with the Big Red One (18th infantry regiment) on that faithful morning. sadly i don't know why he or where he was awarded these medals (any help is always appreciated) but i do know that after the war he started a family with his wife (i assume "Millie" due to the photo) he was awarded the Conspicuous Service Cross in 1967 by the State of New York. the group also came with his helmet with i thought was very cool, on the inside lining there are decals. on the front, a Sargent rank insignia and on the sides what seems to be a faded unit insignia that i cant make heads or tails of.
