Jacket, Field, M-1938, T/5 Howard Kammen, 66th Signal Repair Company


Scarce genuine WWII US M-1938 short windbreaker-type jacket, windproof and water-resistant cotton poplin with flannel lining. This type predated the M-1941 standard issue field jacket soon adopted by the Army, the main difference consisting in the buttoned-flap pockets.

In very good, worn condition, the present jacket is complete with all original buttons and Talon zipper in working order. No label; size seems to correspond to 44R. The name tag sewn in the collar indicates that this jacket belonged to some Howard Kammen.

Howard Sanford Kammen was born on May 21, 1920 in New York City and joined the US Army on October 9, 1942 (ASN 32525079). He went on to serve with the 66th Signal Repair Company. He was discharged on February 4, 1946 as a Technician 5th Grade and passed away on February 19, 2000.
