    Default Step Grandfathers Marksmen medals etc

    Today my grandpa gave me these that belonged to my step great grandfather Louis B. Rau He enlisted at the beginning of 45 for 5 years just catching the end of the war he was in the ordinance dept of the army. Im still trying to find his unit info his SN is 33918452. Two marksm benadges one for carbine one for rifle and one expert marksmen for rifle. The marksmen rifle bage has "Rau" engraved on the back. There is also a victory ribbon bar a us collar brass and a ruptured duck. I thought I would post these because I love items that are related to family history, and this is my first addition in 2012. Comments or any family items please post! -Ben
