1629th Engineer Construction Battalion Ike: Father WWII and Son Vietnam Uniform Group

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

This group kinda happened to me with some really dumb luck. Seller on ebay was parting with his AF blues, this gentleman served with 446th Airlift wing with the 97th Squadron in during Vietnam as a loadmaster on C141's. He was unsure of what his father did other than he was an engineer in WWII. I purchased his father's ike only seeing the 8th Army patch as that was the only shoulder pictured and didn't think to ask if there was another SSI on the other shoulder. Needless to say I was beyond surprised when I opened the box and saw that 1629th Eng. patch on the shoulder!
