Army Air Forces Patched Officer Service Uniform Jacket. Officer service jacket with patches and insignia, olive green with brown hue, wool. Four pockets, belted, single vented, lined. Made in 6/1942, the year of manufacture, the real owner name and his number inside. Captain range, air force patch, US pins on lapels, branch pins (engineering branch), 6-th Army patch.3 service stripes on the sleeve (every stripe awarded for 3-years of service). The jacket shell is in EXCELLENT condition. Lining is in great condition overall, has underarm area and area bottom vent repaired by hand (probably by previous owner). Nothing serious and doesn't affect how the jacket looks.
The measurements also shown in the pictures. This is an unique piece of history! I bought this jacket at a thrift store. The owner's name is captain James Karl Stover.
He was born in Pennsylvania in 1914 and died in 2006 in North Carolina. I don't know anything about his history and his role in WW2, about his life and his family but I believe there could be many mysteries discovered if you have time to do research.
