I just purchased my first WWII jacket from a fellow forum member.

It's identified to David W. Kersting. It has a few extras along with it.

I was hoping to get more information on Dr. Kersting.

All I was able to find was that he was born in Ohio in 1915 and passed away in 1998.

He was buried in the Milwaukee, WI area and became a physician after WWII.

Any further information would be appreciated!!!
