M.O.H. AWARDEES JOSEPH SARNOSKI AND JAY ZEAMER - Current Bid: $100.00
M.O.H. AWARDEES JOSEPH SARNOSKI AND JAY ZEAMER\nRare grouping of war-date signatures of two Army Air Corps flyers who received Medals of Honor for different heroic actions on the same mission! Included is Pilot JAY ZEAMER (1918-2007) who flew B-17 Old 666 on a mapping mission over Buka on June 16, 1943. Jumped by fighters, Zeamer was badly wounded but continued the mission, shooting down one of the enemy and returning his shredded bomber to safety. His signature is the conclusion of a letter signed with rank as major, mounted. JOSEPH SARNOSKI (1915-1943) was an Army Air Corps officer on the same mission. Normally a volunteer, he offered to serve as a nose gunner on the mission. When the Japanese fighters jumped the plane, he shot down two until being blown out of his compartment by cannon fire. He returned to his post and continued to engage the fighters until he died. He signs adding rank and noting his attachment to the 43rd Bombardment Group. Both signatures are mounted and tape nominally affects Zeamer's first name and their ranks, else quite good. Alexander Historical Auctions

681. ALEXANDER H. STEPHENS A.L.S. "Alexander Stephens", 1p. 8vo., Washington, D.C., 1874, to a Frank Terney, a young man in Charleston who is requesting his autograph. In part: "I know of no sentiment short and more appropriate, for a boy who's to be the architect of his future than the couplet of Pope..." Unfortunately, Stephens scrawl renders the couplet illegible. Writing is dark with browned paper. Good. $150-200 Alexander Historical Auctions
