Three more DC National Guard medals. In order, District of Columbia National Guard Long and Faithful Service Medal w/25 year clasp - sterling silver; District of Columbia National Guard medical unit for one year perfect attendance - gold; District of Columbia National Guard, 29th Division Military Police Platoon Honor Medal presented to Corporal Aubrey F. Howell for 100 Consecutive Drills, Feb 6, 1934 - sterling silver. Perfect attendance was almost impossible for young men to achieve in the decades prior to WWII, so such attendance was routinely recognized.
As an aside, from 16 October 1923 until 10 April 1934, Headquarters, 29th Division was allocated to the District of Columbia National Guard, with the CG DCNG concurrently CG 29th Division.
