Help with 29th ID jacket

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I need to ask for assistance if anyone can provide it. I bought this 29th ID uniform and have tried to research it based on the laundry number inside it. One problem is trying to find any info on guys from the 29th awarded the bronze star. Does anyone have access to a list of names? His laundry number is

R-9887. Thanks everyone

I may be wrong, but the bronze star may have been awarded while the soldier was with the 7th Army since that is the "combat" patch he is wearing. He may have served in the 29th Division after the war in the Maryland or Virginia National Guard. Based on this and and his laundry number you may be looking for someone from MD or VA with a R-9887 laundry number. Searching the laundry number gave the following results with Jay Frederick Reynolds, Jr. being the only one enlisting from Virginia. His Find a Grave entry does not provide any help.
