At the request of Militarist, I wanted to add a few more shots of my uniform, specifically the medals.
I took a bit of artistic liberty in this setup with respect to the marksman badges. From what I've gathered, the NG badges were only used up to 1916. Being that I am going for a NJ oriented impression, I really didn't want to leave it off (it looks too good).
The correct marksman badge is placed above it. Notice that this is the brass version for NG troops. I was lucky enough to find this at the flea market since these are not as common as the silvered regular army types and it fits perfectly.
Next is the ubiquitous Victory medal. To go along with the 29th Division's service, I found one with the Meuse-Argonne and Defensive Sector clasps.
Last but not least, is the New Jersey Victory medal.
It took me a good six months to find one, but I was able to add a 114th regiment disc. To complete the ensemble, I found a NJ collar disc to go on the overseas cap.
