Dad's Uniform

Important Historical Note: Over the years, the ribbons have been removed. For the purpose of photographing the uniform, I've loosely attached them to their proper positions, based on the official order of precedence and photos of other period uniforms. If this is not correct, please email me with the proper placement. The ribbons attached to the uniform are the originals. I believe the WWII Victory Medal was not available when dad got out and was not on his uniform. The medals photographed on dad's JWV cap were ordered by my father from the VA in the 60's.

Unfortunately, I don't own a digital camera. These photos are video frames from my camcorder, converted to .jpg format.
