    Coast Guard Medal Bars and Groups

    Post by PaulR on Thu Apr 02, 2015 7:48 pm

    I want to share with you a few of my Coast Guard medal groups. These span from WW2 up until today.

    This first set is to a veteran of both the WW2 and the Korean Wars. He served with the Navy during WW2 and Korea with the Coast Guard.
