Here is the third group I mentioned earlier. While not as exciting as the first two it is still a group worthy of keeping together. It is of a father and son who were both West Point Military Academy graduates and for a brief time served at the same time during WW2 circa 1942 as shown in the photo of them in thier pinks and greens.
This group was obtained via ebay. I had been searching for a Legion of Merit medal and after winning this one and talking to the seller, the daughter of Pratt Jr. I was able to aquire the rest of the things she had. She had no desire to keep these items but was pleased that they would be staying together.
