Thanks so much for the response. It says on my grandfathers military records that he should have received an ARMY OCCUPATION MEDAL (GERMANY) WORLD WAR II VICTORY RIBBON. WOULD THESE HAVE HIS NUMBER OR SOME FORM OF ID. I'M SO VERY INTERESTED IN WHAT HE DID WHILE OVER THERE AND WHO HIS FRIENDS WERE AND WHAT DUTIES HE HAD TO DO. SO IF I BUY THEM OFF THE INTERNET THEY WOULD NOT HAVE THESE MARKS? BUT IF I WAIT FOR THEM FROM THE GOVERMENT THAT THEY WOULD HAVE HIS MARKRS? I'M THINKING THAT I SHOULD WAIT. WHAT IS ANOTHER YEAR. I HAVE WAITED OVER TEN YEARS, I CAN WAIT ANOTHER YEAR. THANKS.
