Named USAF Silver Tans Uniform


Recommended Posts

Picked this up today while out on my vacation for a price I couldn't say no to.  The uniform is named R.J. Maeavley but I cannot seem to find any information on that name yet.  The wing is marked N.S. Meyer with shield and 9M raised.  There are 3 single row N.S. Meyer bars, which I believe are out of order.  Hopefully I can find some information about the wearer.

Thanks for the reply.  Upon looking at it more I believe it is Macauley as you say.  Searching for Macauley does yield some results of Lt. Col. Robert J Macauley.  I was able to find his enlistment record and obituary. According to his obituary during WW2 Macauley flew B 17s and was a 20+ career airman having settled in Kansas City, MO where I currently live and found the uniform.  He passed away in 2001.  Research is still ongoing and I thank you for reading the name in a way that makes more sense than how I was seeing it.

Here are some newspaper clippings. It looks like his top row of awards is missing. Nice grab!

Thanks for this additional information.  I was doing some digging around and it looks like someone has his complete ribbons with his Air Medal.  Maybe a possible reunion in the future?
