    Thank you very much! I have really enjoyed finding these and preserving them. I wish I had more time to research them. Hard to believe they are almost 100 years old now.

    Wool tunic from a 3rd Corps Quartermaster Sergeant. Has 3rd Corps patch, Discharge stripe, and 6 month overseas chevron. US and Quartermaster Corps collar discs. Un-named. Many men from Ohio's 83rd Division ended up in 3rd Corps after the division was broken up in France.

    Uniform and cap of Private Hiram J. Smith, Co. B, 151st MG Bn(old 2nd Georgia), 42nd Division. Only the hat has any information. Jacket doesn't have all of Smith's end of the war insignia. He served in France with Co. B, yet his collar disc shows his stateside Co. D service. He also only has a 6 month overseas chevron, but was with the division when it left in 1917. I will have to do more research on this one. Tunic is dated July 26(my birthday), 1918, and features 42nd Division patch, 6 month chevron, discharge stripe, US and MG Co. D collar discs. Hat has US disc.
