This uniform is 1960 dated. It is a US Army, "Coat, Man's, Wool Serge, Army Green, Shade 44". This uniform is not named but the soldier's partial serial number and initial of "W-3012". This uniform is in EXCELLENT condition. It is of the early pre-polyester blend type cloth that corresponds well with it's 1960 contract date. Sewn near the top of his left current service side of his left sleeve is a nice 3rd US Army patch that appears to be of a late WWII manufacture. Each middle sleeve has the cloth rank patches of a Specialist 5, or a "E-5" or a Sergeant. There is a metal "US" Enlisted Man's collar disc pinned to his right upper collar lapel and the disc is of the proper period. Pinned to his upper left collar lapel is a proper period Enlisted Man's Artillery branch disc. This disc incorporates both the 2 crossed cannons with a missile top overlay motif which is correct for the entire Artillery branch for the 1958 to 1968 period. In 1968 this device was to be only worn, bu A.D.A. (i.e.: "Air Defense Artillery"). The buttons are all of the simple 1 piece eagle types, all hallmarked, appear all matching, and are sewn on with correct thread. The inside of this uniform is of the partial lining type and it too is in EXCELLENT condition. There is a cloth size tag found in the neck area. There is also a cloth size and contract information tag found sewn inside of the inner pocket.
Sewn on the outside of his inside pocket is a large bevo-style, "Pressing Instructions" tag. This uniform includes a pair of August 15th, 1956 dated, "Trousers, Men's, Wool, Serge Army Green 44, QM Cont. No. DA-36-030-QM-8389, Spec. MIL-T-13952 (QMC), Patt. Date 9 Sept. 1954, Phila. QM Depot". They are oddly not size marked. They do have however, the soldier's partial serial number of "W-3012". The trousers are in EXCELLENT condition. Also included is this soldier's matching, June 22nd, 1956 dated, "Cap, Service, Wool Serge Army Green 44, Enlisted Men's Class 4, MIL-O-15993 (QMC), Pattern Date 9 Sept. 1954, Society Brand Hat Co., Phila. QM Depot". This hat also has the soldier's partial serial number of "W-3012" inked inside. The hat has a few tiny moth holes scattered about.
Comments from the Curator:
This Vietnam Conflict Period uniform was donated to the museum by a woman claiming that this uniform at one time belonged to a soldier named: "Kenneth White" of Virginia. The entire uniform grouping all belonged to this 1 soldier, and it is a nive representative piece for Artillery collectors.
