His name is Leon John Jacobi, and he was in the service from WW I to the Mid’50s. This is a very large Rear Admiral Grouping that is in three listings. This is one of the three listings. The corner of the photo is torn off, and I think the date is October 15, 1921. The message at the bottom is: Taken from the Brooklyn Bridge when the first fleet left the yard. There are many cracks and tears in the photo; however, a black frame has protected it. A large black and white photo measures 9 x 7 inches in a frame of 14.25 x 11.25 inches. The inscription on the picture is: To My good friend Admiral Jacobi with great appreciation and admiration. I think the signature is Aleigh Burke. The name could be wrong. The Department of Defense to Leon R. Jacobi, Rear Admiral, USNR, dated February 15, 1956, in a frame that measures 15 x12 inches. The other large certificate is his discharge paper dated November First, 1953. The certificate is in a large frame that measures 15 x 12 inches. Both frames have some damage. A two-star heavy metal plaque is attached to a block of wood. Also, there is a plaque U. Dubuque Club Reunion 1975. So I guess he was also on the U.

The paper surrounding the metal plaque reads Presented 4-20-61 Boat Club lunch by Adm. A 1921 bulletin from his days while he was Midshipman at Annapolis. I have kept it in a plastic sleeve to send. A two-star automobile flag, a 4 x 4 flag, and a little flag with the bulletin. Please look over the pictures carefully as they are also part of the description. From my personal collection.
