    Default help identifying a U.S. uniform

    Hello everyone. I found some photos today and one was of my grandfather Albert H. Clapp. I do not know much about him but what i do know came from a member of this site. I was thinking that it would be cool if i could make a display in honor of him with the uniforms from the photos. I wanted to know if anyone can tell me what kind of uniforms these are so i can search for them and how much one complete set can fetch. I am assuming they are army. He was a private and enlisted in 1945. I am sorry the photo is sideways, i dont know how to change it. Any help is much appreciated and if you need to know anything else please dont hesitate to ask. thank you.

    thanks for the help, i have one more question though. i dont remember where but saw that they marked his branch as not specified. What would it mean if he was unspecified? would this be the reason for the lack of patches on his uniforms in the photos? when the member of the forum looked him up he said it mentioned him being in the army. my dad said he was in the marines because he was on iwo jima or okinawa. he said he brought home a jap arisaka and hung it in his bar until it had been stolen. What do yu think in your opinion?

    He is wearing Infantry insignia in the one pic, and perhaps he had
    not been assigned yet, as you mention.........
