Looking at the shoulder button strap makes me think "O" coat.
Also believe the sholder patch represents "chief" . DANG so long ago--cannot remember if chief had the anchor ???
Does it really matter---PUNCH HIS LIGHTS OUT!!!!LOL
Now I will have to go check--got me wondering.
RETIRED----GOOD FOR YOU--20-30-or in between.
Had a Brother in law-retired afetr 20--made it to warrant--now has a GREAT job w/Bridgestone tire.
CID--Guess he was pretty good--my sister HATED it--undercover in Frankfurt germany--for quite a while
His uniform is Army Dress Blues and has the rank of Staff Sergeant. This is a uniform that we used for formal occasions. We also had the Class A's (Green) uniform. A couple of years ago the Army did away with the Class A's, made a few changes to the Dress Blues and called them the "Army Service Uniform". LINK
There are comments on "This Ain't Hell
" website that says this guy actually served and now works as a contractor. There is still no excuse for wearing a Dress Uniform to a Casino anytime, let alone after you are out, looking like a dirt bag with your hands in your pockets, and wearing ribbons that you didn't earn.
