Make that the 100th Inf Bn (Sep), precursor to the 442nd RCT. The Bn went overseas and served as an attachment to the 34th, and th RCT formed AFTER it.

Appears he has the 34th on the helmet and shirt.

Ron, I'll take the Mod 42 he has in his hands, you take the Para helmet, and we'll both be happy !

Best regards, Paul.
