Nice picture Half. I guess what started the interest is when you said the phone was French.

My husband recently interested these when his father past away. I especially think they are neat coming from a family with a lot of military background

This coin is from the Chiefs Mess of the USS Chief ( MCM 14), a wooden hulled minesweeper. I am a retired Chief Mineman, and the flag in my retirement shadow box (shown) was flown on the USS Chief.

Very nice, I love it!

Question though - Why didn't you post your Rifle medal along with the pistol medal, instead you put your rifle award up as a ribbon...

Because the medal for each is only awarded at the "Expert" level of qualification. I qualified expert pistol, hence a medal. But only "Sharpshooter" for rifle, which only qualifies as a ribbon.

Oh yeah, that's right, I forgot that part. (it has been over 30 years since I was discharged, and remembering things like that is getting foggy)

The coins and stories here are beautiful. Stories of people in war times are the best. Thanks I love this thread.
