WWII USMC Master Technical Sergeant
I tend to collect only USMC jackets with SSI on them but here is one I passed up that now that I look at it in detail is quite a great jacket. Belonging to a Master Technical Sergeant it appears that is Marine was a regular and served before the War even started. First he earned a Bronze Star and he also received a Good Conduct medal twice. He has the Prewar American National Emergency ribbon and the American Campaign. Looks like this Marine was also in two battles. Makes me wonder if the SSI was taken off somewhere along the line. This is a great example of an Old Corp Marine jacket and the winner really got a unique rank that doesn't often appear.
