This uniform is dated 1983. It is a US Army, "Coat, Combat, Woodland Camouflage Pattern", or "B.D.U.'s" (i.e.: "Battle Dress Universal"). This uniform belonged to the famous Infantry, General (i.e.: a 4 Star General), named: "William R. Richardson". This uniform is in MINT condition. Also included is General Richardson's original 1981 dated, "Cap, Combat, Woodland Camouflage Pattern", which has his 4 black color subdued General's stars. Sewn on each collar lapel are his subdued cloth 4 stars insignia. He has his "Richardson", subdued cloth name tape sewn over his right top pocket flap. This name tape is of the embroidered, not printed type. Sewn above his top left pocket tape is a embroidered, not printed, subdued, cloth "US Army" tape. Found sewn above the US Army tape is a subdued cloth Basic Parachutist award insignia, and above that is a subdued cloth Combat Infantryman's 2nd award insignia. All insignia are in perfect shape. Sewn on the upper right shoulder is a subdued cloth patch for former
service in the 23rd Infantry Division. And sewn on his right upper shoulder is a subdued cloth patch for current service in the Replacement School and Command, or "TRADOC" which is the "Training and Doctrine Command".
This uniform has been custom tailored to remove all of the dual inner buttons on all 4 pockets. They have been tailor replaced by velcro. This is a nice touch as it greatly improves both the look and use of this uniform. Also included is a 1981 dated portrait photo of Richardson as a Lieutenant General (i.e.: a 3 Star General). General Richardson was one of the most highly decorated Generals we have ever seen in over 45 years of collecting, and this photo shows all 21 (WOW!) of his awards and medals on his Army Green uniform. Interestingly this same photo does not show him wearing any left side, current service patch (I wonder why not?). Lastly, there is a 5 page biographical information file on General Richardson delinating all of his military career, inlcuded with this excellent grouping.
Comments from the Curator:
General Richardson is a well known person who made the incredibly high rank of 4 Star General. For a soldier who did not serve in WWII, he still managed to acquire an amazing 21 awards and decorations that we know of. And to add much sweetness to this grouping, General Richardson saw Infantry
combat in Korea,
combat twice in Vietnam!
Any combat General's groupings are highly sought after today, and this one being for a full 4 Star General makes it highly desirable. He was awarded an amazing 9 oak leaf clusters and 5 campaign stars, such was his fantastic combat and service career. Which is hard to beat by any standard. This grouping, dies to his high rank and distinguished combat history would be a center piece in any collection today.
