32nd RCT, Korean War Era items


Recommended Posts

Here's the commander; 82nd ABN recondo badge, CIB, master parachutist, pathfinder, and unknown patch on right breast pocket (jungle warfare? unit-specific patch?).

Second picture we see his combat service SSI to be Special Forces.

All of the soldiers are pictured as well, most in utility uniform. SFC Ross has a nice korean made CIB, SGT Tulua is wearing field jacket with embroidered 32nd leader tabs, and "Smitty" wore his tour jacket.

Hard to tell for sure, I don't see a gap in the wreath so could be a star there.

RD12, in 2010-2102, "Chosin" was all about the "Buccaneers"...the Commander at the time handed out 1-32 skull and crossbones patches, oval shaped but reminiscent of the skull and crossbones nametapes. I have one but it will be a few weeks before I can get a pic.

RD12, here is the picture I said I'd take. My Company was the only one that did these at the time, this was my going away gift from the Company after 24 months PL time.

Very neat, thanks for posting! I didn’t realize that they had revived “Buccaneers” until you pointed it out.

Also, nice skull name tapes.

This is not mine, but a picture I pulled from eBay. This is the cover of a Veteran's photo album from his tour in Korea.

Here's a new patch I picked up - very high quality Japanese made. One of the nicest patches in my collection. The border on the white bar is a thin bullion thread.

I'm interested in anything to do with the 17th Infantry Regiment, and or the 7th Infantry Division and would be interested in buying, trading, or just talking about any items related to these units!

Here's my latest 32nd Infantry addition - a map case named to Edward Tompkins. It originally read "1st LT Edward Tompkins" but the "1st LT" embroidery has been picked out. My guess is when he was promoted.

The map and graphics are from a training exercise at Ft. Riley, KS. I assume he had this case made while serving with the 32nd in Korea and then kept on using it. Very cool 32nd patch and skull patch on the front as well.
