Default Great KIA US medal grouping to USN pilot

I thought I would share an amazing WWII US medal grouping. Its to USN pilot Lt. Russel Earl Bowen from Winneshiek County, Iowa. Lt. Bowen was killed in action in October of 1944. He was missing in action. His remains were located exhumed and re-interned in Sioux Falls, SD where he grew up.

Enjoy!

Incredible group. I've been wanting to get a DFC, AM and PH with similar engraving for a long time.
