  1. The patch under the nameplate is for VU-7, the other is VRF-32. Can't give you any information as to the why on the CBI. Hope this helps, Mark
  2. Hi, picked up a pretty ratty M-422 with a pretty ratty VMF-122 patch on it. On the sleeve was this one, looked in all my books but no soap. Hoping the brain trust here can help me with an ID. The patch is 3 3/4" tall and 4" wide from wingtip to wingtip. Any help is appreciated,thanks in advance, Mark
  3. Here is the 87th Division's Clubmobile at the German/Czech border in Apr/May 1945. Enjoy, Mark
  4. Kyle, thanks. It is always nice to put faces with the items. As promised here is a current family photo of the uniforms, in the same order as the photo, John, Joe and Frank. Enjoy, Mark
  5. Allan, I actually have the uniforms for all three of the brothers, John was an instructor stateside-found his wings in the pocket. I'll shoot a 'family photo' of the three uniforms tomorrow. Katieony, thanks, this one is great because it shows one family's sacrifices during the war. Mark
  6. Bringing this one out of archives since I finally got a photo of the three brothers. This picture was taken in Nov. of 1943 before Joe and Frank headed overseas. You can see the 5th Armored patch on Franks shoulder. Still one of my favorite family groups. Enjoy, Mark
  7. That is an O-2, also known as the Oscar Deuce, it was another FAC type aircraft and was used in VN and later. Made famous by the film Bat-21. Mark
  8. That is the 874th Bomb Squadron, not sure the era but that is the unit. Mark
  9. Kyle, seems like a good space to grab a comfy chair, snap a Shiner Bock and look at the cool things IN the display cases. Great stuff, thanks for taking the time to post. Mark
  10. How would a guy in the 50's get a POW medal? The medal was introduced in 1985. I have seen these on numerous 50's era Army uniforms of guys who were in Germany or other parts of Europe. Not sure what it is, sure of what it isn't. Mark
  11. Thanks, sometimes it pays to be nice to the neighbors! I plan on painting their windows (outside) this week, gratis! JD, FYI, most of my other neighbors ARE annoying!! Stay safe out there fellas, Mark
  12. That is one awesome patch, and to have a photo of the aircraft as well, killer! I have one of these myself, 8th AF, with a photo of the crew in front of the aircraft, they are as rare as hens teeth. Congrats on a great group of items-7th AF stuff is tough to find! Mark
  13. Thanks guys, yes, it is nice to have good neighbors. I hung the scarf up and it looks good, I've never collected much CBI stuff but this one is a screamer! Stay safe and thanks again, Mark
  14. My neighbor dropped this on my porch-social distancing you know-belonged to his uncle and he had no use for it. He also said he had a squadron 'long' photo with a B-24 that he is looking for. The 373rd BS was awarded the DUC for sustained combat in the CBI. Hope you like, Mark
