USN S2c USS Mullany DD528
It's been a bit top heavy with Navy items here at MIFG but I have just been stumbling into some great Iwo Jima and Navy related items recently. The latest pick up is this S2c jumper belonging to a Bluejacket who was the the USS Mullany (DD528) a Destroyer that participated in the Battle of Iwo Jima in a fire support role and the Battle Of Okinawa where it was hit by a wayward Japanese aircraft that nearly sunk the ship. The sailor that this Jumper is named to is listed on the ship roster and participated in both events.
