An ebay buy that arrived today.  It belonged to Master Sergeant Frank Zupnick from Queens, son of Isidor and Flora Zupnick from Roslavl, Smolensk, Russia.  He was drafted March 19, 1941 and assigned to the 8th Infantry Division.  While at Fort Jackson he was transferred to Headquarters Detachment, Station Complement, and became chief clerk.  In 1943 he was a Sergeant, and was a Tech Sergeant in 1944.  When he married Rose Harris of Columbia, SC he apparently took her name, becoming Frank Z. Harris for the rest of his life.  He died in 1981 and is buried in Columbia at the Hebrew Benevolent Society cemetery.  

 

Jacket has 4th Service Command shoulder insignia, Unassigned Enlisted Men collar disk, ruptured duck, and Master Sergeant stripes.  No sign of service stripes on the lower sleeve or staining from ribbon rack.
