I recently picked up these 5 DI's together. They came without ID's, so I have been trying to put ID's with them. I have a couple of questions: is what I have found so far correct? why do I have both 1 and 5 to be from the 299th IR? Is one an earlier version? What is number 4? Thank your for any information and education.

 

Left to Right:

 

1. 299th Infantry Regiment

2. Hawaii State Guard Staff

3. 298th Infantry Regiment

4.

5. 299th Infantry Regiment
