What are your opinions about the helmet? Combat used?
Here are the informations about the soldier:
He started his career in the Navy seeing some service time at the end of the war. He earned the WW2 Victory medal, the Occupation Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign medal and the American Campaign medal.
He then enlisted in the Marine Corps in the 50ís. Most of that time was spent on active duty training the Reserves. He picked up his National Defense medal then.
He then spent time in VN as an artillery man and earned a star for the National Defense medal, a VN Service medal with 2 bronze stars, Humanitarian Service medal, Navy Achievement medal, Republic of VN Meritorious unit citation, Gallantry Cross medal, and a Republic of VN Campaign medal.
He was discharged around mid-70s as a Master Sergeant with a Good conduct medal with a silver star.
The helmet has his serial number on it, as well as his name on the cover and the leather sweat band.
Thanks for your help!
