    Citation Star.
    Steve,
    Very nice. I have a special place in my heart for the Victory Medals. I have amassed a goodly amount of them to include all the Navy with bars and all the Army Countrys etc. Had intended to have one for each Division but was overcome by events and haven't completed that phase yet. I really like this one you posted.
    Terry
