Korea War USMC 2nd LT 1st Marine Division
I picked up this WWII USMC Officer jacket at a local swap meet. Sadly the name tag is almost washed out and the name is barely readable but with some help from other collectors I was able to get a good approximation of the Marine ID might be. It is in line to get the records of this particular Marine. Update 5/12: I was able to finally confirm the ID on this tunic. This 2nd Lt was in the 1st Marine Division and saw combat in the Korean War in 1952-53.
