Welcome back, it’s time for another round of articles on antiques, vintage items, and history. I can’t believe it’s been six weeks already! I’m so grateful to all of you who have been coming back each week to share your posts and to read along, y’all have brought such interesting olde things to the party, and I know I’ve learned a thing or two.
In Honor Of The Upcoming U. S. Veteran’s Day Holiday
I’m sharing some of my father’s military memorabilia from the 1960s, during his service in the United States Air Force. He was stationed at Taipei Air Station in Taiwan during 1967-1968. The photo below shows Taiwanese currency from that era, along with two of my dad’s military medals. This is actually a sneak preview of a post I’ll be sharing on Veteran’s Day, which will include information on how you can research old military ribbons you may have from one of your family members.
I was able to find out that the solid blue ribbon is the Presidential Unit Citation, and the other is the Air Force Good Conduct Medal.
A big “Welcome!” to everyone stopping over from the link-up at Kathe With An E called You’re Gonna Love it!
