Appears to be on a m1938 officer dress blues for NY National Guard or possibly a State Guard. I have a SG uniform with the same NY officers insignia.

My Missouri National Guard dress blues for the colonel is the same.

I wonder why the branch color on the shoulder strap is not Infantry blue?

Because it is not the US Army 3d Infantry (The Old Guard). There was in the 19th C. (and maybe still is) a NY state guard "marching and chowder society" nicknamed the Old Guard. The US Army Old Guard never had exclusive use of the nickname.

But, I guess that still doesn't clear up Infantry brass and red shoulder straps.
