    The tunic will be dated and named in the inside left shoulder if it is WWII.
    WW II marine tunics had a cotton lining as opposed to a shiny synthetic lining in later tunics.
    I hope this helps.

    Looks like Vietnam era, the medal does not look like it belong. It is a restrike of a China Relief Medal from 1900, not sure why it is with the uniform

    Hi DocRoe, The last photo is an absolute give away for post War, the garment has a NATO Codification Number commencing 8405, This is the NATO universal section code for uniform clothing and is usually but not always followed by a country of origin code, either 00 or 01 for the US.
    Hope this helps.
    Regards MR
