Then out spake brave Horatius, the Captain of the Gate:


"To every man upon this earth death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better than facing fearful odds,


For the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his gods."

Gil ,

The shirt in post 6 was mine once !!!!!!!

But what do I have to do to get the THORNTON name tag from you ??????

owen

 

You do realize there are two different Gil's on here, right? Gil Sanow has the Thorton name tape.

 

We have done this intentionally to confuse uniform collectors for years! Mr. Sanow has referred to me as "the other Gil".

Interesting.

Before WWII there was Chaplain 1st Lt. Francis P. Borowski who was the Chief of Staff of 1938 Pulaski Memorial Day Parade.

 

It would be good to know if they came from the same American-Polish family.

Of equal interest are black on white nametapes worn on the left side only (No U S ARMY) or white tapes worn above the yellow on black ARMY tapes, both on the left side. I think these were used in Korea toward the end of the war there, or a little after.

 

One of the recent postings of photos from the Korean "police action" show the latter stacked style.
