Uniform of VMTB: Silk Patch


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Picked this up a while ago from the grandson of the veteran. He was nice enough to include a photo of his grandfather. Cpl. Hines served as a member of VMTB 134 and more than likely served later in the war and into occupation duty where his SSI was made. Sadly with the archives being closed I don't have his exact info on what he did during his time in the service but hopefully by the end of the year its open again!
