I bought these 2 photos (along with a bunch more) in 2004 at a little antique store for 50 cents. These 2 are 8 x 10's. I found the one photo to be especially interesting with his Marine patch on his right sleeve and large Navy/Marine type ribbon bars over his left chest. Looks like the top ribbon is a purple heart. From what I've been told, his Army uniform appears to be 1947-ish based on the use and placement of the branch insignia.

Great foto, Hard to make out the lower collar discs, almost look like Branch Unassigned one's.two U.S. on the top, two branch ones on the bottom,

 

The foto cause it has these on the lower lapels will indeed date past 1947, December 1946 up till late 1951, October,  then the Army goes back to wearing them in the old familiar way, U.S. on one side, branch on the other.

 

The Branch Unassigned or as it's sometimes called Branch Immaterial collar disc.

Since I have the benefit of having the photograph in hand, the lower collar discs are Quartermaster.
