This uniform belong to a woman who was the first woman from the Penobscot Nation to be in the USMC during WWII. This uniform spoke to me as it has a lot of unique features. First it was nice to see a "ruptured duck" honorable discharge badge on the front, something I don't see to often on women's uniforms. Second I liked that it still had the wide navy ribbons on the coat. Finally I like the unique trait that it has a ordnance badge on the lower cuff. A rare qualification badge not often found on male or female military uniforms. This uniform is the centerpiece of my WWII USMC collection and glad I will be able to share her service to people.
