I had 2 step dads both passed away . This man was a family friend and my Moms boyfriend in 7th grade . They broke up and she married my dad . They had a wonderful long marriage and when he passed away and both her and my step dad were widowed , they married he died suddenly in first year of marriage from a brain tumor . Anyway he was very good to me and lived a few blocks down the street . He gave me this along with a doll that was in the box . I was stupid and sold the metals years ago . He fought in germany in WWII and suffered PTSD after having to kill and enemy and after seeing some bad scenes in camps . He was in the 60th Infantry and I am not sure of his status on discharge what rank he was .This suit is made of heavy wool . I will be posting a few other things that were in this box . He sent this box home to his Mother . Shipping was 50.00 ! In 1942 appx ! Wow .
