    The bars were on the jacket. I do not which of these were on what jacket.. There are 5 gold bars on also I have misplaced the id dog tag and the 4 leaf clover that was sealed in a plastic holder.
    Note any help from anyone would be appreciated. !!!!
    ONE OTHER THING.....I cannot see any of the photos I have posted ...just blank squares.
    I can see other posts but they are some how connected to EBAY, SO IF I click on them I Am immediately sent to eBay to bid. ALSO THERE IS A WINDOW THAT READSB”NOT A MYSTERY “ I cannot place The word MYSTERY choices are.....not a mystery....mystery solved. Etc
    THIS POST IS A MYSTERY!!!! LISTED UNDER METALS PIN AND BADGES ...AND...MILITARY PATCHES. I HOPE THAT THEY STAY IN THAT CATAGORY. SOMETIMES SOMEONE IN CHARGE WILL MOVE MY ITEMS TO SOME OTHER CATAGORY???

      Patches: 17th Airborne Division, 1st Allied Airborne Army, 14th Air Force (Tiger), and China Burma India (CBI).

      Patches with "T" are rank insignia for a Technical Sergeant, other similar patches in next photo are rank insignia for Staff Sergeant.

      Rifle and wreath is a "Combat Infantryman's Badge".

      Item with four small ribbons is a medal ribbon bar (shown upside down).

      5 gold bars are "overseas service bar"-- each bar represent 6 months of service overseas, so soldier was overseas for 30- 35 months.

      You can find more information on each item by conducting additional searches-- LOTS of information out there.

      It is a shame the uniform was not taken care of.
