TTM Success - Hershel Williams

When I first got the discounted boxes of cards from my LCS, I found this 2019 Topps Allen & Ginter History of Flight card and thought about how awesome it looked.  I couldn't figure out who I would get to sign it, and then I decided to try to get a Medal of Honor winner to sign it.  So, I sent it to Hershel Williams, and it came back very quickly.  The card looks amazing, and I am so glad I sent it out to be signed.

Williams (b. 1923), also known as Woody, received the US Military's highest decoration for valor, the Medal of Honor, for heroism during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II.  He and Charles H. Coolidge are the last two surviving Medal of Honor recipients from World War II.  He was awarded the medal by President Truman.  He is also a recipient of the Purple Heart.

I mailed to Williams on November 16 and got the card back on November 23, for a 7-day TAT.
