Picked up this intresting looking sign today at an antique store. Not quite sure on the era. Appers to be hand painted though possibly with stencils. I couldnt see any other markings on it.

Illinois, maybe it from the days when the 31st Division was located in neighboring Indiana at Camp Atterbury during the Korean War era, this of course will be a WAG on my part :D

Heres a photo of the 118th Georgia NG field artillery, notice the unit flag has the same red and yellow color scheme as my sign. Possible its just a coincidence but maybe not.
