Over 34 years ago, I decided to collect my father's WWII Medals and give them to him for Christmas. The task took over 9 months even with being on active duty ... and I had to go to the French Government for one of his Medals! The cost to frame them (on a Captain's pay!) gave me a heart attack - but they were a great hit with Dad and the entire family.
To our surprise, several other family members asked me to do their Medals. When I groused and grumbled, Linda said, "You know, there's a need for a company to do this for Veterans and their families" - and from that idea, Medals of America was born!
Our mission is simple - we want every Veteran and Service person to display the Medals our grateful Nation awarded them. Anything we can do to have all the great Americans who served their country in the Military Forces display their awards will enrich future generations by these symbols of Duty, Honor and Country.
