I hope the holidays have been good to you!
My pleasure, reference the info, I researched this medal prior to purchase and this was one of the pages I found. The navy borrowed army medals (type 3) as was stated. Neat info!!
To be honest I treated this medal as a wound medal not a KIA one! but my eyes are much more open wider about this coveted award.
I have deep respect for my miniature and my cased one.
I also did not know the PH was given for KIA soldiers until I began to dig for info. I thought it was a wound medal also. So much education per every piece we collect! Too much fun my friend. I didn't call it a coffin box but I could see it being a fit.
