Dug out the jacket. It's like you see in the pic with the flag. This Ike never had para oval or right sleeve patch. Don't know if you can see it in the 40s pics but that is the way he came back. If I remember correctly the OS cap was a medical piped cap, but had the early light blue infantry parachute parch (without the glider)
