The man I rec'd it from was a Navy Corpsman on Iwo Jima; he had tears in his eyes when he talked about that island as if it everything happened yesterday and it's almost 60 years ago , This 1911 was handed down 11 times. It originally belonged to a Marine Captain and then made its way down to the Corpsman, who the Marines obviously held in high esteem. This man was awarded three purple hearts a Silver Star, and a Bronze Star with two oak leaf clusters. He is obviously a true hero. He said that being a Corpsman, he wasnt supposed to be armed.
