    Default Need help with a shadow box

    I have been writing a novel for close to 3 years now about a soldier in the 82nd airborne 504 parachute infantry regiment (Devils in baggy pants) Anyways what i would like to do is get all the parts to what this fictional characters dress uniform would be, including medals,citations, lanyards etc and i've found it hard to find these things for that unit specifically, I do know that I will need a European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with campaign stars and possibly an invasion arrow head,An American Campaign medal,a purple heart,and a world war 2 victory medal but past that i don't know I do already have a set of jump wings and i'm looking at getting the oval patch that goes behind it(modern unfortunately) so any help you can give I will gladly take it Thanks again

    Perhaps this Sergeant-Major's Dress Tunic (Class A's) with WW2 Service Ribbons will help out a bit...

    I assume it would have to be an OD green to match? If i went with an overseas cap would it need a patch? I know it would need light blue piping. As for a visor whats a good price? I know its a lot of questions but like i've seen on the forum thousands of times if you don't know ask

    It would look better with a patch the uniform is infantry is what you are talking about. Do you have any pictures of the items you have for the shadow box that would really help me to tell you what type of cap you are looking for.
