Need soldier unit ID'd

Recommended Posts

Antique store find. I thought the patch was felt 7th INF DIV. Now I'm not sure. The shooting badge, looks like a manuvers badge. Can you ID the DUI's?

 

imprint on the cardboard frame, N. Giannins, San Leandro (CA). That woiuld put it north of Ft. Ord, the home of 7th.

 

I think it's a pre-war shot.

Yes, this is probably from the late 20's when the 17th Infantry Regiment was stationed at Fort Crook, Nebraska .. In August of 1927 the 7th Division was deactivated and reactivated as the 6th Division, then in October of 1933 they were reactivated again as the 7th Infantry Division. Quite possible that the photo is from shortly after they were reactivated as the 7th ID in 1933 .. If you're interested, I have a blog with some of my 17th Infantry / Fort Crook collection. https://17thftcrook.blogspot.com/

 

PS .. I would love to get a higher resolution copy to try and see what company this gentleman was with.

I'm interested in anything to do with the 17th Infantry Regiment, and or the 7th Infantry Division and would be interested in buying, trading, or just talking about any items related to these units!
