This Is One Of My Uncles Old Uniforms. Not Sure If It was Ever Worn. Hangin In the Closet Of the old Abondaned House. He Was In The Navy back In The 60's. That I do Know. I am Not sure if I put The Shoulder Things On Correctly Or not. Not Sure If this Uniform is Navy Or Not. His name Was Robert H. Widdowson. He died Back In 1996. After He retired out Of the Navy He Went To Work for The Postal Service. He was a great Guy! Thanks For Lookin! yall Have A womderful Day!

    The insignia with the eagle would be blocked and sewn on-- I believe on the other sleeve. I cannot tell what the other item is, but it doesn't go on the shoulder.

    I am an Army guy-- give it a little time and you will get the 100% solution.

    The shoulder item looks like it may be service stripes and would be sewn below the eagle insignia.

    Link to a Navy jacket posted here with insignia sewn on:

    God Bless your uncles Service. As a Disabled Vet I have a deep respect for those who serve. Take care of the uniform and treat it with respect, as I see you have been doing, IT IS MORE THAN JUST SOMETHING TO WEAR.......
