Korean War In Theater Paratrooper Tanker Styled Jacket

Recommended Posts

Interesting jacket.  The owner was an Airborne officer.  The jacket reminds me of a tankers jacket but the owner wasn't part of an armored division.  Has anybody seen this type of jacket? Does it have a name?  What are the DUI's on the epaulets?  I'm assuming the patches were in theater too.  It's missing the tape under the Master Jump Wings.  The lining looks like a repurposed M-1951 liner.  Thanks for the help.
