    It is not disrespectful or tactless to display them, just give them a special area without clutter.

    2. What is the significance for Marine Corp unit designations, for example, Hotel 2/5

    I concur with irpat's answer, display them with pride, nothing wrong with displaying a relatives service items, if you have the dates of service I can probably come up with what the Unit was doing at the time for Historical purposes, no gurantees though...

    You can buy and create a shadowbox designed for displaying medals and unit patches. For instance this is mine (note that I also served in the Air National Guard, hence some of the Air Force stuff).

    As has been said, display with pride. Your Grandfather was a member of the most decorated Marine Regiment in all of Marine Corps history, the 5th Marines. They made history in Korea at the "Frozen Chosin." S/F
