    The RA prefix indicates 1950s era.
    Looks like it could have been a parade helmet due to the chroming.

    Can't read the number but agree it is probably '50's.

    In the NARA database I only found 1 Valenzoela but was an E4 rank (Corporal) and was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal in 1969. So doubt it is him.

    NARA - AAD - Display Full Records - Awards and Decorations System (AWADS) Translated File, 12/1965 - 11/1972

    The NARA database is spotty.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
