And there you have it, a Reservist or a National Guardsman was my guess.
101st patch, what do you think?

For the Combat Infantry Divisions we have the.

I took a OD border 35th Division patch and noticed it was slightly larger than the thread location holes. I know people relocated after the war. Could it be possible that a 35th Division patch was there since it was in a local central Missouri estate auction. I noticed that there was a light tan colored shirt behind this coat that had a Missouri State Guard patch. I do not know if they were together before. The guy told me he got them at the same auction.

That's one more shoulder patch grouping I forgot to mention, the circular shoulder patches of the Headquarters National Guard, there's a lot of those, these patches coming out in the 50s.
