    Default US Army Air Corps Service Uniform

    I have yet again stumbled across another service uniform being disrespected and forgotten. I just had to save this one from the junk pile of a flea market, sitting out in the drizzle of rain. It'll be going up in the classifieds as I don't collect these (I just save them from the trash!) and I'm sure a collector of US militaria can put her back together better than I. And an interesting note, I found a discharge certificate in the pocket, qualifying the soldier for special train fare home or to place of induction, dated Oct 1945. Adds a personal touch to the whole uniform. Enjoy!

    Nice uniform. If only they could talk. 2 years overseas says something for a US Air Corps airman.

    Thanks

    I'm glad I could save it before it got ruined from weather or trashed. It's a shame these items are shown such disrespect.

    Not my cup of tea, but a very nice uniform and good that you saved it from the rain. Hopefully someone will buy it who will appreciate it.

    Always good to see clearly dated uniforms

    Not my cup either but when you see one that needs a home you can't help but make an offer. Gives some satisfaction. Great overall condition and the shirt is still crisply starched

    For sure. I bought a British army beret recently mainly because it was in a sadly neglected state. I took it home, cleaned it and it now sits nicely in my collection. It makes one feel good.

    A real nice early 4 pocket with 2 years of overseas stripes.
