  1. Very nice find, same feelings about ground forces men obtaining the air medal, definitely unique/uncommon. The 95th ID is also a unit uniform wise that rarely comes up in my experiences. It love to hear more about the guy if you can find the air medal citation
  2. Would you be able to send and or post that if you had some time, I really appreciate the help as that makes me very happy to say the least
  3. Hi Steve, I will definitely make use of this contact too as I can verify for example if Klauck is indeed the vet
  4. Hey Seth, do you have a roster or some kind of list where you saw the date he left overseas and or his final rank? Also wow, i was thinking it was one of the 2 Californians as they would be the closest to Washington and Oregon which would be the areas the 41st drew upon for soldiers. But if you found that evidence, that is a very good lead
  5. Hello all, I recently came across a mini group that i need help with a possible ID with. It is a uniform that comes from a vet who was in the 41st and went all the way through with 3 1/2 years overseas with the 41st. The 41st being among the 1st of the divisions to go overseas and being committed to combat in the PTO in late 1942. The vet was obviously very decorated as he won a Silver Star, Bronze Star and Air Medal with OLC which to me, screams artillery observer in a L5 Piper Cub possibly, which to me also makes sense as he has coastal artillery collar brass. I wish I had more info on the v
  6. Funny thing is, I do have a 28th uniform and live in PA. Havent seen too many pop up though, and when I do, they are always nice pricey in my opinion ( for an average run of the mill one)
  7. In my experience I concur that the 1st is an easy division to find. The 99th, 28th and 97th in my opinion are hard to come by. As for PTO units, I find more 32nd and 38th than I do 41st and 31st for example
  8. Oh yea love that Aussie patch and crusher, great named 5th Air force uniform
  9. Beautiful uniforms. Been looking for buckeye uniforms as they’ve seem to eluded me. My grandpa who was a TD gunner in the Philippines told me he was near the 37th. Great finds overall!!
  10. love the link, impressive collection. Wish I had some of those uniforms
  11. Oh thats so neat, definitely post the book contents whenever you have time.
  12. There’s one in the for sale section under uniforms for a Pearl Harbor pre ww2 arty vets uniform with red backed collar disks
  13. Thank you so much, my grandfather was in the 806th which went to the Philippines so thats why I love pacific and tank destroyer stuff so much. Showed it to him yesterday and he looked at the patch and overseas bars and like Chamberlin, was in a m36 in c company as well which is a cool coincidence
  14. I agree thanks?! I should mention it comes with his pants sized 36 waist. Definitely a big farm boy
  15. Hi Everyone, its been a while since I posted but I wanted to show you all a uniform I just received. As many of you may know, tank destroyer items are one of my main areas I collect due to my one grandfather. What I have to show is a really nice and semi local uniform group to a PA vet who won the Silver Star for heroic action on March 29th 1945. Wendell Chamberlain was born on Jan 29th 1921 in Shippensburg PA. He entered the service on Jan 1st, 1943 and was assigned to C Company of the 628th Tank Destroyer Bn, C Company. I do not know exactly when he was promoted, but at any rate, W
