Picked up a nice size 3L 1944 Dated Marine Corps Service Alpha Blouse with PFC stripes and a 2nd Marine Division Patch and only paid 30 bucks for it.

Will post pics when I get the chance.

Well done mgkusmc........ sometimes I had wished we had worn Division or Wing patches while I was in...but, then...... we were all Marines and it wasn't important what we did....just WHO we were..... MARINES.

Hey mgkusmc, that reminds me of my grandpa's alpha blouse from World War II complete with Corporal stripes, 3rd MarDiv patch, and the "Ruptured Duck" signifying honorable discharge above the right breast pocket. Next time I'm at my parents' house I'll take some pictures and post them here. Good stuff

Very nice blouse. You can get WWII EGA's for it at pretty reasonable prices if you look around. Thanks for posting!
