 80th Division 

Ephemera and gas mask from David W Lecky (I-Company)

The jacket has infantry collar disc with an S

The helmet has a B painted opposite the Blue Ridge.

I bought all of this as a group but it doesn't appear that they were from the same soldier.

Love the jacket! I have family in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and live relatively close myself, so the 80th is close to my heart! What are the two ribbons on the jacket?

From what I can see, they look like they are definitely VFW/veteran group ribbons. 


The one on the left looks similar to the one in this link: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/74698-77th-division-wwi-veterans-grouping

 

I'd say maybe Allied service on the left, and maybe ordnance serve on the right? 

 

Definitely needs some more research, I'm not well versed in WW1 veterans organization ribbons though.
