Silver Star Medal to KIA U.S. Marine – Pulled from a Dumpster

This Silver Star Medal in the original box was presented to the family of a U.S. Marine in Asheville, NC who was killed on Saipan.  Apparently he had no relatives who appreciated this award as it was found at the bottom of a dumpster in front of an elderly woman’s house that was being cleaned out.  I was lucky enough to get the call from a “dumpster diver” who saw my ad and thought it might be worth saving.  I am amazed all to often to hear of similar stories.  Rest in Peace and Simper Fi, Sir.
