    The first is the Blue Star Service Banner, hung on the doors of family members of soldiers in harm's way. This one hung on my great grandparents door when my grandfather was in the Navy during WWII. The second is the VE Day (Victory over Europe Day) Mediterranean edition of the Stars And Stripes. The third is a document he received from the President of France at the time, thanking him for his service. It reads:
    François Mitterand, President of the French Republic
    To
    Mr. Robert N. Broberg
    In tribute and in recognition of services rendered to France during the war 1939-1945

    For the President of the Republic's Defense Attachment

      These son-in-service banners are still traditionally used today when military family members are deployed to combat. My parents and my wife both had a large one in the front window both times I was in Afghanistan. In the last year or so, we have started more actively collecting pre-Korean War U.S. Militatia, so I greatly appreciate your these items in your collection!
