    I found it! It's labeled Jan. 14 1942!! I didn't pay to much for it, $20...

    The tag wasn't easy to find!

    Any info on the 5th Service command?

    Army organized the army service forces at the outbreak of ww2 & within that force were nine service commands.
    They were responsible for transportion ,food,ammunition & medical services in the continental U.S....

    The design was arbitrarily selected to represent the 5th Corps Area Service Command. White, being a mixture of all colors, was selected for the reason that Corps Area Service Commands may be composed of all arms and services. The geometric design represents the Command's numeric designation.
