  1. Military Police (MP) or Military Intelligence (MI) colors.....
  2. Could be a USN CB attached to a US Army element or mission. When I deployed with the 21st TSC into Turkey during the Northern Option 2003....we had a USN CB element assist in a mission. After talking with them....they were a small stand alone detachment working supporting the mission. So the sailor could be a CB. The CBs are an outstanding and proud organization.
  3. Thank you for your comments....I’m impressed with aznation’s research....to put history/info to a piece that was named. I was impressed by the bullion eagle...that’s what caught my eye. When I held it...I told the seller that the buttons were wrong but now O know that the strap buttons were correct to the cap. All in all...nicely named piece.
  4. Makes sense....I was a Major in Army JROTC but enlisted in the USAF & Retired as a MSgt. For me...it’s this bullion Infantry visor w/Missouri state seal buttons on the cap named to a Lt. ...sitting in France...but researched to a SGT assigned to the 356th inf regiment MG unit of the 89th ID....Who served in France during WWI. All that said.....THANK YOU!!!!!
  5. Thank you AZNATION for all your hard research. I am confused.... “SGT.“ vs. “Lt” ...and then “Captain”.... but the manifests and grave marker “SGT” ...was he reduced or demoted. Why the difference...I would think...once officer....you stay officer. Maybe someone can explain..etc? I really really appreciate your research
  6. Hi Folks: I recently found this 1912 pattern US Army company grade officer's visor cap. I found this in a French flea market in Metz...and the bullion Eagle caught my eye. Inside it is name both on a label and hand-written. "Frank Yoder" The paper label "Lt. Yoder". There is a silk tailor's label "THE PETTIBONE BROS. MFG CO. CINCINNATI, O." i would like to actually ID this visor if possible. The visor has "Missouri seal" side buttons holding the visor bullion strap. I've done some research on Ancestry.com but I couldn't really ID any yet. A few que
  7. I’d like to put the “semi” correct ribbons on it....I was thinking: CIB Bronze star ”maybe” Purple Heart Good conduct medal American Campaign medal ETO w/stars...“maybe“ arrow head WWII Victory medal ”maybe” occupation medal Presidential unit citation wish I could ID this jacket
  8. Welcome to the forum...you’ll learn a lot. I’m an American living and working Frankfurt am Main. Do you find much US stuff up there since there weren’t many stationed up there? You re-enact?
  9. In the mid 1970s ....the US Government changed the Fiscal Year from July to October because Congress needed more time to approve the budget.
  10. Hi: I see a US flag with white stars in a circle pattern....on blue...so I think earlier. War of 1812 or Revolutionary War....
  11. WOW artillery private...MA NG but yet he had 4 years of college...OCS then commissioned.
  12. You could ask if someone has a copy of the paperback book “Index to General Orders for the 94th ID” by Brandon T. Wiegand. He published/created many booklets for the various US Army units listing the soldiers rec’ing medals, etc. in 2005
  13. 4 battle stars on ETO would match 94th ID campaigns ....he ordered the jacket prior to going overseas on 6 August 1944 per 94th ID in wiki... Strange that someone tacked a USAAF patch over the 94th ID patch but we’ve all seen stranger things....maybe theater, etc. You could request his records...from US Military center and/or write Massachusetts State Archives records. You could also find his son’s contact info....and request assistance. You might find out a lot about the jacket and the soldier.
  14. Hi: Here is a picture of my Grandfather who served with 60th Coastal Artillery Corps (CAC) Battery "D" in St. Mihiel and Argonne offensives. He's wearing the 1st Army Artillery shoulder patch upon his return to CONUS....his picture was found in a yard long provided by another collector of this forum.
