Hello, I purchased this 20th AF Ike Jacket and I would like some info/opinions about it.
The items shown were allegedly found in the pocket of the jacket.
It was supposed to belong to Cpl Vito S. Schiavone 33 946 027.
The leave papers, flag and pamphlet of civilian life were found in the pocket.
I have two concerns:
1. Why would there be an infantry insignia on the lapel instead of a AAF insignia?
2. I am having trouble finding info on Schiavone.
I ran the serial number on the Archives site to no avail.
I did find this website and he is listed under S as a member of the 20th.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
