I picked up this post war Ike jacket because I felt I would be able to identify the previous owner from the name tape off of a fatigues shirt that came with it at the flea market. With the laundry number of B-5087 in the collar of the Ike jacket I was able to identity the former owner as Demetrio O Bersalona service # 39705087 (August 14, 1913 - Oct. 15, 1977). The only issue I couldn't figure out was that he enlisted after WW2 on January 1, 1946 in Los Angeles, California yet he has the 1st Filipino Infantry Regiment SSI sewn on the right side of his Ike jacket. The 1st Filipino Infantry Regiment was disbanded in California in 1946 so I thought you had to be in combat with the particular unit to wear their patch on the right side (combat patch) of the uniform. Based on left over stitching the Ike jacket is missing a pair of specialist 2nd class chevrons and years of service stripes on the left cuff. I don't know if the wool overseas service bars belong on this uniform as I think it is on the wrong side and there were a number of nonmilitary patches that someone had sloppy hand sewn all over this uniform which I already removed. He was not a US citizen when he enlisted in 1946 and the only other information I could find was that he immigrated to Seattle, Washington in 1930 at the age of 17. I do not have a personnel listing for the 1st or 2nd Filipino Infantry Battalions.
