Need help With ID of shoulder cord?

Hello I am trying to figure out this cord? This is a named uniform. Found him on the roster sheet of HQ Co. HQ Bn. 15th Armor 1943. He was a Tech corporal then. Any help on cord ID would be great? Thank You!

The colors look like Ordnance branch of service.

 

The uniform is problematic as the National Defense ribbon didn't come out until 1954, well after the T 5 chevrons went away. The armor brass is also well past WWII vintage.

 

I would assume that someone has taken a WWII Ike jacket and simply added the insignia.

Thanks Allan for your fast reply! It was a antique mall find! So God knows! It is the full jacket 1942 date not the Ike but you would not know that with my picture. So I need to strip the insignia and put it away! Thanks Again!

Any markings on the two qualification badges?

Agree its a full jacket and someone has added a few post WW2 items to it.

The pocket flaps are straight and the gold buttons are seen on the shoulder strap and through the button hole.
