Acquired this years ago due to the theater-made Liberators tab and sew-on ribbons and then kind of forgot about it. Dug it out recently and noticed there was a name in it. Turns out this belonged to LTC Howard Aubrey Trammell LTC -Retired- 4/18/1920 - 2/9/2000. Amazing how much info a quick internet search turned up.
Enlisted in 1939 in Missouri. As a captain in WW2, was CO of C Co 62nd Armored Infantry Bn and was awarded his Silver Star for actions in January 1945 in the Vosges Mountains of France when the Germans staged their last offensive of the war - Operation Nordwind. Cpt Trammell's company was part of Task Force Hudelson during the battle and was involved in some very heavy combat.
In the Korean War, as a major, he was an advisor to the Korean Army.
Retired at some point as a LTC in the Army Reserves.
Lots of info for 10 minutes searching the internet. When I first acquired the coat, all that interesting info wasn't available and I forgot about it.
