Unless you request his records from the NARA you

are just guessing and not restoring. But he would have undoubtedly had the american campaign Asia pacific and the wwii victory. Its.possible there are more but to properly restore would require writing the archives with an SF 180

Nice uniform!

I collect items from The Battle of Iwo Jima (1945).

Top Iwo Jima Items I'm Looking For:

1) IDed 5th MarDiv Corpsman Jumper or Forest Green Coat.

2) IDed Coast Guard Navy Jumper

3) IDed CB's Sea Bee's Navy Jumper

4) IDed 147th Infantry Regiment Army Service Coat

5) IDed 32nd ID Army Service Coat (Occupation Kyushu with 5th MarDiv).

I am always looking for named and dated WWII USMC Forest Green wool alpha jackets/coats from the 5th Marine Division or other units who participated in the battle.

Should be no problem getting the records, only if its less than 63 years after they left the service that you can only get partial records.

 

Have Lori at Redbird Research or Geoff at Golden Arrow pull the records...

 

 

Good Luck!

very nice. hard to find patched ww2 USMC officer's uniforms it seems. Just google Geoff Golden Arrow Research. He is awesome and he can email pdf file of the NPRC records to you. I did it myself for a long time before frustration with NPRC forced me into having Geoff do it for me for zero hassle.

 

I have some ww2 USMC Capt'n bars for your uniform if you want to restore it.

I SEARCH FOR, RESEARCH, AND PRESERVE WWII USMC COMBAT GROUPINGS; NAMED AND PATCHED BLUES AND ALPHA UNIFORMS; MEDALS; SWORDS; AND CLASS RINGS FROM THE CITADEL MILITARY COLLEGE IN CHARLESTON, SC.

The ribbon bar would be the thick 1/2 inch bar. I would put Asiatic Pacific with 1 star, American Campaign and WWII Victory.

I would say no on the PUC due to the 6th Defense Battalion never being awarded one. I am not sure about marksmanship badges. I don't see anything in his file saying he was awarded it.

It would sometimes, I looked up the 6th and 15th Defense Battalion and they weren't awarded any unit awards.

ok looking at his records on jun 1943 awarded the navy E for excellence in gunnery. is that a award that you get a ribbon for?

 

I am not sure. I don't really know much about marksmanship ribbons or badges.

You really need a copy of his DD-214 to know which medals and awards this Marine was awarded, that is the way it works. The Marines do not give awards so easily but proficiency in marksmanship is a primary corps value.
