Okay well it took longer than I thought, but here are my grandpa's medals from WWII. His highest rank was major. He flew B-17's on anti-sub patrol for the first few years. He flew out of Cape Cod and then Nova Scotia. Transitioned to the B-29 in 44 and flew the bombing campaign against the Japanese home islands in 1945. He flew off of Tinian. He was on active duty from April 1941 - March 1946 Notice he has campaign ribbons from both Europe and the Pacific.
