  1. This was on the discharge of a Staff Sgt that was a member of the 29th Bn of the 7th Reg of the Field Art Repl Center at Fort Sill, with 2 yrs & 7 months of overseas service. It says the overseas destination he went to was “Mercury”, he arrived back in the US on April 10, 1944 & was discharged in September of 45. I think this might have something to do with the Atomic Bomb Project? He only has the American Theatre Medal, ADSM & CGM

  3. My gg-grandfather enlisted in 1914 and served in the 6th Calvary during the border skirmishes in 1916, when WW1 broke out he transferred to the 3rd Division, 3rd Ammo train, and was wounded on July 20, 1918, he was discharged with the rank of Sgt in 1919 with 20% disability and passed in 1940
  4. Would a Pvt in Artillery wear the standard Mills Cartridge belt in the field? Or just a pistol belt w/ added pouches
  5. This uniform belonged to a Battalion Surgeon in the 7th Div. in Korea. I noticed that it had silver buttons, I've never seen that, would the lapel insignia be silver as well as the cap badge, chinstrap and side buttons? Is it correct that a tan shirt with a black tie and belt would be worn with it? Would anyone have charts of the insignia that would be worn on the uniform shirt?
  6. This belonged to a Cpl in the HQ Co, of the 291st Inf Reg, in the 75th Inf Divi. His specialty is listed as a Refueling Unit Operator, with the 3rd Air Divison, assigned to the 8th Air Force. He was awarded 5 campaign stars, including "Air Offensive Europe". He was given a general discharge from an army hospital and was not eligible for reenlistment, despite not being wounded in combat. I was thinking he could've been hospitalized for something relating to him being an alcoholic, since he died young because of that, could I be correct? Does anyone have pics of an Army Refueling Unit?
  7. Do you of anyone that was one for sale or where I could get one? Preferably in 7 1/4 or 3/8
  8. I have a discharge certificate for a PFC that served in the 87th ID Hq Bn in WW2, In the qualification box for Marksmanship medals, the CIB, Rifle MKM badge are noted among others, including the words "2nd Class Gunner", I've never seen that before, could it be for field artillery?
  9. The only thing I need help with is acquiring a DUI for the uniform. Was outbid on eBay the other day
  10. Anyone know the Insignia/Branch color that was worn by Army RR Bns in WW2? I'm trying to recreate his uniform.
  11. Outstanding piece, my great-uncle, Joseph Geroch, was in the 16th Constabulary Sqdn, he was a witness to the Gatow Air Disaster
  12. Asking this because I recently acquired a 2nd AF Sgt's uniform, and I am trying to put the correct ribbon bars on it
