Medal Ceremony in 78th Fighter Control Squadron (2 of 5)

Medal Ceremony in 78th Fighter Control Squadron (2 of 5)

Here we see the medal party at a medal ceremony for the 78th Fighter Control Squadron, possibly with seven men awaiting awards (although the figure just to the left of centre might have been involved in the organisation judging by the next picture.

Many thanks to Matt Susko for sending us these pictures. They were found in a collection associated with LeRoy F Purtell of the 78th Fighter Control Squadron, 63rd Fighter Wing, 12th Air Force, and show the award of a Bronze Star to an unknown airman. If anyone recognises the airman please get in touch (using the Contact Us link below)
