WWII USMC 5th Division HBT Jacket Iwo Jima
This exception WWII USMC jacket appeared on ebay a few weeks ago named to an Iwo Jima vet in the 13th Regiment 5th Marine Division. Incredible HBT jacket has some tall tale signs of being an Iwo era jacket, including the UNIS markings and the name stenciled on the back while typically post war HBT are found with the name written above the pocket. An incredible jacket!
