    the bloke was a corporal who has been awarded the american campaign medal, the ww2 victory medal and possibly the good conduct medal but i can't see it fully
    the patch above his stripes is the us army airforce patch i can't be sure as i can only see part of it and there are many variations
    i think its original imho it looks good but without better pictures of all the insignia thats the best your gonna get

    It is an early 4 pocket enlisted mans blouse.
    If you will look in the lower right hand pocket you will find a white tag with the date on it.
    There should be 2 dates on it the latest date will be the date of manufacture.
    The patch on the lower right sleeve indicates that the owner was a communication specialist.
    Probably ground crew.

    I am sure that the first ribbon is a Good Conduct ribbon. You're right Tom!
