Do you recognize this young sailor?
I found this photo in a thrift store this week, and I couldn't bear to leave him to be tossed out by anyone who spent $1.99 for the frame he was in.

Despite his youth, this young man had an awesome career at the time of this photo. As best we can determine, he was Petty Officer 1st Class, a Radio Technician and served on Submarine Combat Patrol.

His ribbons are (my best guess using a b/w photo):
Meritorious Service, Navy & Marine Corps Commendation, Navy Good Conduct Medal, Eur.-African-Mid.Eastern Campaign, American Campaign, Asiatic Pacific Campaign (with Bronze Star,) WWII Victory Medal, Korean Service Medal (with Bronze Star). The Bronze Stars indicate a second award or indicate major engagements in which he participated.

We figure that he probably served near the end of WWII and went on to serve in the Korean War. That would make him in his eighties or perhaps nineties, today-- which is hard to wrap my head around, looking at this photo and his boyish, charming smile!

I know it's a long shot that anyone in TN will recognize a man whose photo wound up in a Florida thrift store-- but stranger things have happened! If you'll pass this along, who knows, we may get to send him home again!

At the very least, he'll get some recognition again for his meritorious service to our country. If no one recognizes him, he'll have a permanent home with me, although I wish he could also have his name.....

My deepest heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all our veterans, past, present and those to be future. Not all of you gave your lives for us, but all of you vowed to do so-- and for that, my respect and gratitude is lifelong!
