WWII USMC Technical Sgt. VCorps
I picked this one up last week on Ebay, it was being sold as parts or material as it was rotted out due to water damage. Looking at the photos the jacket was named and looked like it once had a V Amphibious Corps patch on it at one time. I went ahead and bid on it and won the jacket, receiving the coat yesterday. Upon receiving the coat it looks like it was named to a Marine in a AA Battalion attached to VCorps. The real damage is that the thread is rotting away and the coat is coming apart at the seams. Overall I think I can save this one with some TLC. Since its not Iwo Jima related it will be awhile before I get the records.
