This Marine jacket and cap were worn by a WW II vet who served in the Pacific during WW II. The rank is that of a staff sargeant. The FMF-PAC shoulder patch denotes Fleet Marine Force Pacific. The quartermaster stamp dates 1943. The jacket features the "Ruptured Duck" on the right breast. The ribbons are as follows: Philippine Defense Medal with Star, American Campaign Medal, Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal with Star, Purple Heart, Navy Presidential Unit Citation with star, and the Presidential Unit Citation with Oak Leaf. I hope I am right about the ribbons.
Hey guys I found the missing ribbon bar in one of the pockets. Let me know the correct order if you can,
