Artifact of the Month

US/UN/ROK Blood Chit

A blood chit is a notice carried by military personnel and addressed to any civilians who may come across an armed-services member – such as a shot-down pilot – in difficulties. As well as identifying the force to which the bearer belongs as friendly, the notice displays a message requesting that the service member be rendered every assistance. This blood chit was worn by LTC C. Miguel Duncan, Jr., during the Korean War.
