    Hi Rene, The only markings on the jumper is his name stenciled on the inside bottom and his initials stenciled at the neck. Regards, Hal

    Interesting ribbons.
    Top row left to right:
    American compaign, European Theater ( 2 compaigns ), Pacific Theater ( 2 compaigns )
    Bottom row:
    Philipine Liberation, Yangtze Service, WWII Victory.
    The Yangtze Service is a hard one to find.
    Great grouping.

    Sorry, not a Yangtze Service Medal...the Yangtze has a blue center band. The green center band on this one makes it a Navy Unit Commendation Ribbon. Ribbon only, no medal.

    I think its a gunners mask to stop you getting burnt. I believe they are still used.
