Just picked this up last weekend, found at the RoseBowl fleamarket by my buddy Tom....not named to one guy but narrows down to 112th Cav H Troop Heavy Machine Gun 1st Platoon 2nd Squad also has Tateyama Japan where the 112th occupied that town, theres some nice film footage of them occupying that town on critical past...mike

Nice. Thanks for sharing. I've always found these flags with US unit information written on them to be really interesting. Hopefully I'll pick one up this year.
