Small 442nd / 100th BN Ike jacket Grouping


Recommended Posts

Picked up this grouping at the flea market. The Ike had all the ribbons, badges and DI's pulled off but still with it so simple task of putting them back on. The vet was in B Co 100th inf Bn and I do have his name. Working on getting some pictures but I have seen one of him wearing this jacket.

Thanks, I'm extremely happy with this grouping, a 442nd Ike was one of the things on my bucket list of stuff to find before I leave Hawaii because I don't think I will just be able to run across one on the mainland. I'm probably leaving in September so I was getting close to the wire haha. I'm still working a deal for the paper / photo portion of the Grouping so I don't want to post the name until that's worked out. That being said I don't see the harm in posting up a picture I took of a photograph of the vet wearing this jacket. You can see the plastic covered PUC and the green boarder 34th ID patch.

Thanks, I like it a lot as well and I hope I can work a deal and get it as well. I was looking for a empty trunk to put these and hopefully the rest of the Grouping in as well and I remembered I got a Footlocker from a KIA'ed soldier from 442nd a couple of years ago and dug it out. He was in F co of 100th but the locker was from B co. It's like it was meant to be. Wonder if they ever met each other?

Very nice find!  Does the overseas cap have the DI on it?

Not anymore, unfortunately he sold one of the Italian made DI's and two of the German made ones. As well as some medals. one of the DI's was thrown on the overseas cap when I got the grouping however it wasn't straight or in the right location so I seriously doubt the vet put it on there. The other DI as well as the badges, ribbons and scroll and some other things I haven't gotten yet like an unnamed bronze star and a unnamed Good conduct medal were in a jumble in the lid of the bronze star box. The German made DI was in the pocket of the Ike jacket.

This is a bucket list level jacket, especially with that tab. Thanks so much for sharing it. Would you mind posting a close up of his ribbon rack?

Picked up most of the rest of the Grouping, still waiting on a good conduct medal and ribbon a German cap eagle and possibly a couple of other odds and ends but this is the best of it. The star patch looks Italian to me but I'm not sure.
