Hello all,
I know this isnt the place to post a want add but this is more than a want add, i'm looking for something specific, my Great Uncle's 2 Purple Heart's from WWII, as well as a Bronze star. Story is they were sold or lost long ago and i can only wish one of our members would have it in ther possesion. It would be named to Erving Kopas if anyone has this i would pay top dollar to get these back in the family no questions asked. No Forgeries please!

Eric,

Try posting at the Orders and Medals Society of America website. Perhaps someone there can help.

The WAF also has a "reunite broken groupings" thread on its US forum.

But if he wasn't killed in Action, and was awarded the bronze star before the 1947 CIB conversion, its like a 95% chance that they would not be named.

Thanks guy's
Jerry he made it home only to be shot during a card game in 61 or 62. Mom say's she remembers him with two purple hearts named, and a bronz star or silver star for heroic actions i.e. saving wounded men. Wish i would have been able to know him. Going over to the parents to look for pictures of all the Great uncles that served in WWII.
Eric
