Jump wings with 6 combat stars!
Glenn Pearl sent me this photo of these jump master wings with 6 (!) combat stars that belonged to his dad, CSM Horace Pearl. He was with the 82nd Airborne, 505th PIR.
Four of these stars were earned in WWII and 2 in Korea: Normandy (St. Mere-Eglise), Holland, Sicily, Salerno, Pyong Yang, and Munsani, Korea.
Even though these are post-war jump master wings, I thought these extraordinary wings deserve to be shown here.
