WWII USMC Technical Sergeant 2nd Division

Where do you start with a Marine that enlisted in 1929 and left the corp in 1951? This marine did nearly everything a Marine could possibly do in the service during that era: Virginia, San Diego, Cuba, China, Guam, American Samoa, WIA, 2nd Division, Panama, 4th Marines, V Corp and 2nd 155mm Howitzer Battalion which served at Iwo Jima. Wow what a Marine! This dress blues dates from the late 40's when the marines went to a four pocket Dress Blues Jacket. I'm sure there is an incredible story behind this one! update 2/20/13: I am about to have a custom rack made for this coat, thought I'd give you a sneak peak of this Marines career:
