THIS IS AN EXCELLENT SOURCE FOR ALL THINGS UNITED STATES ARMY AIR FORCE DURING WORLD WAR II , VIETNAM AS WELL AS IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.
THE BOOK EXPLAINS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF EACH AWARD AND ITS ATTACHMENTS. IT ALSO NOTES SOME OF THE AVAILABLE GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE SOURCES FOR MEDALS, PATCHES, RANK, AND INSIGNIA AS SHOWN IN THIS BOOK. HOWEVER, AN INTERNET SEARCH USING “UNITED STATES ARMY AIR FORCE” REVEALS EVEN MORE SOURCES. I COULD NOT HAVE COMPLETED MY FATHERS SHADOW BOX WITHOUT THIS BOOK.
