    1914 Colt Navy carried by a US navy hero. This one stays as is.

    I see a 1898 Spanish Campaign medal there. Would like to see the sidearm from that one.

    Nice display there. I’m saluting to that.

    I am writing a story for American Handgunner on this piece . There was no one in the family to pass it to so I am the new guardian.

    Phenomenal Greg. Way to honor those that earned it. Thanks for sharing.
    Edit to add that I'm looking forward to the article. Is that saber from the same hero?

    Absolutely outstanding. What an honor ... I can only imagine how humbling it would be to hold this piece in your hands.
