A early one right. like the one your Father has on his cap. Man is Jerome Hermann, Hermann was evidently in the 215th Glider Field Artillery Battalion when this unit was activated, so perhaps it is Red and White this cap patch, thats what we would would think right. This unit, 215th Glider Field Artillery Battalion was only a glider unit for around little over a year October 42-January 44, its then redesignated and reorganized as a big gun field artillery battalion firing the 155mm Howitzer. The 215th FA Bn gets to the ETO in mid-sh December 44, and Hermann is KIA in April 45, and is at the Netherlands American Cemetery, 215th FA Bn was probably a Corps Artillery unit in one of the Corps of 9th Army, because the 9th Army was in the north near the English, and it would seem that many 9th Army KIAs or Non Hostile deaths were sent to this cemtary in The Netherlands.
