    Default SHAEF Patched Khaki Shirt

    After a good bit of web surfing the other day, I was able to find this really cool WW2 U.S. Khaki shirt. After looking over the photos, and seeing the very fair price tag of $26; I quickly bought the shirt.

    The deciding factor for me on this purchase were the patches attached to the shirt. The patches include- Three overseas service bars, two technician fourth grade patches, a ruptured duck, 100th infantry division patch, and my favorite, the SHEAF patch. I believe the seller I got this from runs a resale shop, and this was one of the items they received from donations. I don’t think they completely knew what this was, as the shirt was lazily balled up into a padded envelope to be shipped to me.

    Anyways, I just wanted to share this cool piece of history with you guys. It’s not everyday you get an item that belonged to a member of Eisenhower’s staff.

    As always, any and all opinions are welcomed!

    Best regards- Jarret

    Nice Jarret!

    Could see this guy rubbing elbows with Eisenhower, Monty, Bradley, etc. etc....
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Thanks MAP!

    There's lots of history in this piece for sure. Unfortunately there's no sign of a laundry number or name, so I can't research the owner. But I think the shirt as it is speaks volumes.

    Best regards- Jarret
