  1. Thank you for the information. My great uncle, William Heyman received this medal which I have now framed along with the letter from Pres. Nixon. How can I find out my uncle’s military history? I don’t know much except his medal says, “France” on the ribbon.
    Thank you.

  2. I’ve just started to research my grandfathers participation in WW1. He was Italian fighting for the American Army as a mechanic.
    His name was Antonio Visconti.
    He received a Purple Heart and several other commendations upon honorable discharge. I look forward to learning more about our history.
