ARTIFACT: This is a United States Army Air Forces 4th Photo Squadron, 13th Air Force pilots' grouping. The grouping includes a group photo, an individual photo, a named air medal by A. E. Co., a 13th Air Force shoulder patch, three wings, a ribbon bar with an oak leaf and a single star observing the pilot's participation in five events in the Asiatic/Pacific arena, two WWII ribbon medals, two pair of first lieutenant bars and two pairs of officer collar insignia. It appears this is LT Kenny's only entitlement. From Harris County, Texas, he was killed, non-battle. There is a bit of mystery about his death: he may have been murdered. He was a 1st LT when he died (serial Number O-465831). He was commissioned through ROTC from Texas A&M.

VINTAGE: Circa WWII.

SIZE: Various sizes, including an 8" x 10" group photo, two 3" wing, and one 2" wing.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Everything is made of expected materials: wings are sterling, one pair of collar insignia is sterling.

ATTACHMENT: Various.

MARKINGS: Air medal engraving reads "LT RANSOM D. KENNY JR. 4 PHOTO SQ LONG RANGE". 8" x 10" photo reads "OFFICIAL AAF PHOTOGRAPH" on back with "BUD '44" handwritten on front. Individual photo reads "'45 NEW GUINEA" in handwriting on reverse.
