VFW Vice Commander Greg Marlow is hoping people may recognize the face in the pictures and help him identify the soldier. Marlow asks anyone with information about the soldier or items to send him a message at 601-730-8182.

Marlow said many Purple Heart medals are serial numbered and often located on the bottom left edge of the medal. He looked but could not see a number or any engravings.
