  1. Here is a beauty of a helmet I just picked up from Jeff at Advance Guard Militaria. Nicely ID'd on top and on rim. Photos by AGM.
  2. Here is a beauty I recently picked up, AAMGB ID'd to Jacob Strobel, 3rd AAMGB
  3. I thought the same thing about the rating, but definitely an outline of a spike and too thin for SGT stripe.

So I am assuming that it's 50 Artillery CAC, unless the disc was put on later, which doesn't seem to be the case here given where and how I bought it. Problem is that the 50th didn't arrive until late October and served overseas less than 6 months. I am comparing ship lists going over vs. coming back to see if I can take out those who transferred in after arriving in France. If I find a soldier who transferred in from another unit and arrived earlier, I might have an i
