473rd Infantry regiment uniform, PH ribbon, named


RDUNE

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I just wanted to share a uniform that I recently acquired. The uniform is named and I found an obituary for a local man by that name. The obituary mentions that he earned the Purple Heart in WWII. It doesn't look like its had collar discs, CIB, rank insignia etc attached. I don't see any holes or indication that anything has been removed from the uniform. I haven't found a roster of men from the 473rd, after action reports or general orders online yet, but I intend to send away for his records and hopefully that will provide some answers.

 

Thanks for looking :)

Thanks for the kind comments and very helpful PM's :) I'm going to request his records from NPRC and will post them when they arrive. In the meantime if anyone comes across the general orders for this regiment please shoot me a PM. I would love to see if this veteran is listed.

I honestly can't recall if I got his file or not. We moved, had a baby, etc and a lot of my files are still packed away. I know I still have the uniform but it is in storage right now. I will see if I can find his full name & serial number. I believe the last name was Lemon.
