German regalia from a family friend

Post by hambubger » 08 Apr 2023 02:36

Our family friend, who is about 97 and served on the Western Front for the US during 1944-1945 recently moved. He still had some "souvenirs" from his service time, several of which are posted here.

We would like to confirm exactly what these are. Looks like an Iron Cross 2nd Class, Luftwaffe Paratrooper award, but wasn't sure on the others. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
