WWII USMC PFC 18th Defense
Here is something one does not see that often. Here is a USMC WWII 18th Defense Battalion service coat. The 18th Participated in the Saipan and Tinian operations and mostly used in defensive positions. These Defense coats are hardly ever seen in collections. Special thanks to Ben for allowing me to reproduce this picture.
