WWII USN Radioman 1st Class USS Sanborn

One item I was trying to locate was a WWII Navy Jumper with Amphibious Patch of a sailor was participated in the Battle Of Iwo Jima. That was a tough request as patched Navy Jumper are not found that often. I was fortunate enough to locate this jumper of a sailor on the USS Sanborn (APA-139). The USS Sanborn felt the battle first hand with many of its landing force were killed on the beach and with another Sanborn sailor earning a Silver Star for actions at Iwo Jima.
