I have this military medal owned by Herbert Choy (look up if you don't know who he is) and I can't identify it anywhere. I think it may have been a custom made medal for him but I don't know. It would be great for my family history to know what this is.

to the CCF!

I don't have an answer for you, but it would help in general if you would crop all of your images so that we can see more detail/ any inscriptions, and so forth.

This is a Japanese military wound badge for combatant wounds.

It was my great great uncle Herbert Choy's. He never served in Japan and enlisted the day after Pearl Harbor. How can he have found it intact on US soil?

He might have bought it from some of the Japanese-Americans as they were herded into the internment camps.
