  1. Thank you to all of you for your comments. With the EGA on the Viet Nam Service ribbon and the Combat Action Ribbon, my guess would be that being attached to the Marine Corps, he could have been a Corpsman. Thanks again, Al
  2. Since March, when Covid-19 Kept us from going to estate sales, I have been thinning out the collection. Found this ribbon rack in a box of miscellaneous items, long forggoten. No name associated with it. Looks petty new with the Vanguard ribbons and Vanguard plastic backing. Seems to be a gap in service between WW2 and Viet Nam, with reserve time in between. What bothers me is only one good conduct award in all that time. I guess anything is possible, what do you think? Thanks, Al
  3. Interesting 8 x 10 photo's of four different aircraft. These were released by the manufacturer's PR departments: Boeing PT-17 Kadet Trainer; Curtis-Wright P-40-N Warhawk; North American Aviation B-25 Mitchell and Consolidated Vultee BT-13 Valiant Trainer. I especially like the one photo of the Boeing PT-17's with the national markings of three other countries--China, France and ?? PM me if you would like close-ups of any of them. Enjoy them. Al
  4. Just saw your post Leigh, thanks for the info. I'm getting good feelings now about the originality of the shirt.
  5. Thanks MasonK. Just saw your post. All I got was the name and the shirt, no info on his military history. With the unique name, this has to be him. Thanks again, Al
  6. Thank you ASMIC2971. Excellent information. How does a US paratrooper qualify for Canadian jump wings? Cross training? TDY/TAD? Joint Op? Still searching for info on him. Many thanks again, Al
  7. Thank you Wake1941. Maybe if someone could help with finding if there is any military history to Mr. Orville Menese Keeton, we can tie all of these patches to a time frame. Thanks again, Al
  8. When I first saw this, I thought it was made up for Halloween or something. Canadian jump wings. Recondo. Jungle Expert. 82nd AB. No name, no lables. Relative said it belonged to their uncle, Orville Menese Keeton, paratrooper Gulf War Veteran. My limited ability researching his name did not bring up anything. All comments most welcome. Thanks, Al
  9. A hybrid. Army crossbars do not go to the edge, Navy bars are not beveled.
  10. I believe that the Captain's bars are USN/USMC.
  11. Thank you dustin. The knife you referenced is like new, beautiful. But you know, since I am a collector of WW2 militaria, and I know the knife came from a WW2 Veteran, I like mine better. Thanks again for your help. Al
  12. Thank you to both dustin and sactroop for the informative replies. Would either of you feel OK to give me an approximate value of mine? Much appreciated. Thanks again, Al
