Army EM/NCO Uniform Necktie -- ONE (1) Original Korean War EM/NCO Shirt dated 1953, size 31x33 Drafted at the end of WW2 and effectively held in Selective Service limbo until being deployed yet again at the outbreak of the next equally deadly conflict, this grouping equally straddles the spheres of both the Second World War and the Korean War respectively. At this time, the identity of the soldier is simply known as "BROZ B-8351".
These identifying marks written in some sort of marker or pen can be found on both the inside of the trousers as well as the inside of the tunic. What I find curious, is the star device he has pinned in the American Campaign ribbon.The only star devices authorized for that ribbon were anti-submarine raids on the east coast against German u-boats. This was not his story. More than likely an oversight on the soldier's part. Perhaps he meant to have to star devices in the Korean service ribbon, and he just nabbed other blue one by mistake without even thinking. The ribbons are just as he left them. In case you were wondering why there's a Navy Commendation Ribbon on an Army Uniform, the unit's Korean War-Era Battle Chronicle says it all: The 32nd went ashore on 16 September 1950, and were immediately met by small arms, mortar, and tank fire from communist forces. The 32nd advanced north toward the Han River, the last natural barrier to Seoul. The "Buccaneers" of the 32nd, in the cold morning hours of 25 September, crossed the Han Rover under intense enemy fire and captured their first objective, a dominating hill mass outside Seoul, at 1030. Its capture provided the 32nd with sufficient momentum to gain all assigned objectives. With the capture of the surrounding heights overlooking and dominating the city, US Marine elements were able to resume their advance. The regiment was awarded the Navy Unit Commendation for their actions in relieving pressure on the Marines.
