Before anybody mentions it, yes I know that is Navy rank on that hat. It was almost 7 years ago those were taken!

July 15, 1945. At an airfield near Brussels, Belgium President Harry S. Truman, en route to the Potsdam Conference in Germany, speaks to a member of the 137th Regiment of the 35th Division. The 35th Division was designated as honor guard because it was the President's outfit in World War I. The soldier speaking to the President is Staff Sergeant Ernie Atkin of Madisonvale, Tennessee.

  Staff Sergeant Atkin is also a Silver Star recipient.

Instructor from the Seventh Army NCO Academy in 1961. The tabs are definitely not the standard green. Any idea what color they are? White? Infantry blue?

This is from a uniform belonging to a Flight Officer glider pilot.  The 9th Air Force used these stripes as combat leader stripes.
