Virgil (Virgil Harris Mulkey). Group of Virgil’s World War I Marine Corps Service Medals. 1918. Several medals received while training for the US Marine Corps, including honorable discharge chevron patch; Marine eagle, globe & anchor pin; Marine good conduct award; WWI victory medal; great seal of the USA bronze watch fob; and silver ID bracelet reading “Pvt. Virgil H. Mulkey/Sec. 2 Co. A/Marines/Mare Island, Cal.” Two weeks after Virgil enlisted, the Armistice was signed. Virgil continued to train, hoping to be shipped out to Germany for post-war police duty. However, that winter he would contract diphtheria, effectively ending his military career.
