    Air Medal
    "For Meritorious Achievement while Participating in Aerial Flight." Established 1942.

    Description: A bronze compass rose 1 11/16 inches circumscribing diameter and charged with an eagle volant carrying two lightning flashes in its talons. A fleur-de-lis at the top point holds the suspension ring. The points of the compass rose on the reverse are modeled with the central portion plain for engraving the name of the recipient.

    Ribbon: The ribbon is 1 3/8 inches wide and consists of the following stripes: 1/8 inch ultramarine blue 67118; ľ inch golden orange 67109; center 5/8 inch ultramarine blue; ľ inch golden orange; and 1/8 inch ultramarine blue.

    The Eighth Air Force awarded 442,000 Air Medals in WW2.

    One Captain James Hunter, a B-24 pilot with the 491st Bombardment Group, 854th Squadron, earned an Air Medal, which read in part: "For meritorious achievement in accomplishing with distinction several aerial operational missions over enemy occupied Continental Europe. The courage, coolness and skill displayed by this individual in the face of determined opposition, materially aided in the successful completion of these missions. His actions reflect great credit upon himself and the Armed Forces of the United States".

    This is in fact a US WWII Air Medal...I'm curious though, what is the brooch style on the back...is it the slot brooch or early issue full wrap brooch?
