Tom, Thank you for the information!On Dad's discharge papers it lists him as a Staff Sergeant.......do I have that put on the placque or just "Sergeant". Could you tell me what the "Staff" means? I have some of Dad's records but I would like to get more information and also display his medals in an appropriate way. He was awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart. I know he was injured badly and would like to find out more about that. I don't mean to take advantage of your kind response - but I'm new at military research and feel somewhat lost!
