    From my meager knowledge of M1's in pretty sure only ww2 liners had the hole on front. Wait for some more expierenced comments.

    All the best,

    It is a WWII-era liner. This one belonged to Stanley T Radecki, who enlisted in the army on August 28th, 1941. He was from Detroit, Michigan, and apparently worked in one of Detroit's automobile plants before the war. Here is his complete enlistment record: http://aad.archives.gov/aad/record-d...=1&rid=6313029

    Mr. Radecki unfortunately passed away in June of 2007.

    You're welcome!

    Whenever you find a piece of U.S. militaria that has a soldier's name or serial number on it, the first place you should go is here: http://aad.archives.gov/aad/

    Just type in the name or number, and there is almost always an enlistment record for the soldier in question. Then, I always run a Google search of the name, sometime followed by the words 'obituary' or 'WWII'. More often than not, I can find something. Obituaries are nice, because they bring up the names of surviving relatives. I have never been successful, but in theory you could use their names and Facebook to find a relative and say, 'Look what I found!'
