    I take it that these are the only ones available on that date. Medals from WWII like the European/African/Middle Eastern Campaign Medal are not listed. (There are a bunch of others.)

    Your right I wasn't looking for those medals when I posted this. I think the dept of Defense in 1989 figured there were not that many ww2 vets still left in the service to include those medals.

    Savoychina1, I did a little research and found that decorations and service medals of world wars are now considered obsolete.

    Obsolete, only in the sense that they cannot be earned any more, not in the sense that the medals that have been awarded have no value.

    Your right, my dad earn his medals for the 22 years he was in the Navy. I can only imagine what my dad went through at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941 and the rest of WW2 and then again in Korea. I value his medals highly.
