Since he is African-American he probably didn't serve in a airborne unit during WWII, as far as I know they were all segregated.

ALCON,

Listed a set of his greens yesterday with a reconstructed period ribbon rack based on his NARA documentation, on eBay.

Thanks

ALCON:
Pulled it.
It wasnt fair to the first 3 bidders, not having identified the ribbon rack as reconstructed in the overall description.

Cheers

ALCON:

 

A set of Morse's greens and a large binder of orders-documents and photos was sold/bought on here back in 2009/10.

 

If that person still has the binder and uniform please shoot me a PM.

 

Thank You

 

Jim

Still looking for the buyer circa-2009 from the Forum that bought his binder of docs and orders.

 

Thanks
