    I would say that the first name is Thomas. Not sure about the serial number though.

    I believe your right.

    Thomas L Rackliff not Radcliffe

    I believe the helmet maybe a reissue, I don’t thing the SN is for a Officer and the helmet I have did belong to a Officer(will post the whole helmet later) and you will understand. So I maybe running a rabbit trail.

    No dont think it’s a coincidence. I found the same thing in my search and that may be him.
    1. Helmet is a reissue
    2. Name is of the first Vet.
    3. Service number starts with a 51. 51 is for Connecticut
    4. Vet is from Connecticut
    5. Correct age for 1960’s service

    Reissued to Officer after fact.
    Do not know if they were regular army or reserves.
