    Roman numeral for 5th?
    Yellow suggests training purposes, I would not want to face an enemy with that on my helmet.

    I agree with bright color, looks like you would have a "mark" on your head.

    The yellow is coming across brighter due to my flash.

    I can tell you what its not, US Army 5th Inf Div. was a Red Diamond, US Army V Corp was a Pentagon shape made up of 5 Triangles , USMC V Corp was 3 stars and a alligator head on a shield.

    Yes it could be for a training or service support unit but I'm leaning towards US Navy or Coast Guard but can't give you a reason more of a gut feeling.

    I also believe the markings are from a Training Unit....
