  1. I'm having a hard time figuring this jacket out. He obviously was in Europe, but he doesn't have a European ribbon, nor does he have a WWII victory ribbon. He has a service stripe but no overseas stripe. Is it possible the jacket is missing a ribbon bar? I realize I dont know half of what you guys know, but does any of this make sense? Also, the jacket came out of the Somerset Pa area, I'm guessing those national guard units mentioned wouldn't be correct.
  2. Are those laundry numbers on the bottom of the straps?
  3. Thank-you Salvage Sailor, I think you nailed it!!!
  4. I need some help with identifying a ribbon. I purchase this jacket and cap from a thrift store, and I have no idea what the ribbon is on the far right. It almost looks like a prisioner of war ribbon, but it isn't exact from the examples I found. I'm also not sure what the 80-888 numbers are. There is also a S-O-989 number. Thank-you for your help!!!
  5. That airborne one is hilarious!!! Too cool!!!
  6. Love these Ronnie!!! So cool!!! We talked about it before. I still have my two.
  7. Can you tell if there is a painted Indian under the modern paint? If so, maybe you can be very careful to remove the modern paint. If there was never an Indian underneath, then you would have a nice EGA named marine helmet. Just my thoughts.
  8. Wow, that would be cool!! Looks like he had his tetanus shot in 1943, so he was in early enough to see some island hopping.
  9. I recently purchased this ID bracelet and would like to know who the soldier was. Can someone help me with his identity? He didn't etch his name anywhere, only what appears to be his service number. 822-83-56. Thank-you!!
  10. That is cool!! I've seen a couple different versions. When I was a kid in the 70's and 80's, I remember seeing one similar in an army/navy surplus store in town.
  11. Wow, Awesome!!! If you have any from Cambria County Pa you want to sell, let me know.
  12. Awesome!! I was eyeing that one myself.
  13. Thanks Matt and Rooster!!! Definitely an honor to own his helmet!! I'm having Lori at Redbird pull his files, I hope she can find out more information on him.
  14. Thank-you so much aznation for the information!!! I totally agree!!!
  15. Here is the post I found. The picture is from Bougainville. The photo reducer wasn't reducing the photo properly, that is why I made the photo smaller from the original post. http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/242145-ww2-navy-helmet-with-stripe-and-star-on-ebay/
  16. I picked the colors from what I believe to be originals.
  17. As for the blue, the ESB used a very similar color as well as the 29th division.
  18. Sorry Scott!! I guess I should have posted all the pictures.
