Medal showcase

Helen Geoffroy, sister-in-law on the Joyal side of the family, had Jerry's medals and ribbons put into this special case. Here Jerry holds the case:

The photo is one of the few with Jerry in his US Marine Corp uniform from World War II. Who is he holding? Niece Paula Brousseau.

I'll get the descriptions of his medals and ribbons for another posting. I'll also take some more pictures on a day with better natural lighting. I was having some fun avoiding getting too much reflection in the glass covering the medals.
