This is an amazing WWII / Vietnam USA Airforce grouping from LT Colonel R. Kuene.
There is way too much to mention everything, but in short there’s two completely meticulously filled in WWII logbooks starting in 1942 showing Keuhne starting his training. Very interesting is that one has a period picture of a pin-up girl.
Kuehne had an amazing career spanning up until 1970 when he was honourable discharged and did several Vietnamtours where he earned many medals. Two rows of miniature medals, as well as his dogtags are included in this lot. Also two full size cased Bronze stars with ribbon and lapel pins and a cased Airmedl are included, the medals are all in excellent condition, the cases however are a bit damaged. We could have removed them and nobody would have ever known but they are how and what they are and simply breath history!
Also included are four large sized maps with citations, many (too many to mention all) paperwork and several photo’s of Kuehne from his early years untill the late 1970’s. For sure this group could be researched very well from all this material alone. Its is one of the better Vietnam (starting WWII) groups we have had in a long time.
Most items are in very good condition!
Please mind if you buy this from abroad there might be some addictional shippingcosts as everything together can only be sent in a big and heavy box, shipping costs to Amerika or Australia/New Zealand, Canada, et cetera are probably close to 50 euro.
