Name: Norma Branham
My roommate's father died when she was 4. She is now
48. He served in the Army and
we have found patches in things of his that we do not know what branch of
what decoration they are. Her uncles (4 of them) also lived in the house
with her mother and grandmother.
The patches could be theirs.
We found the "bars" they wore above their pockets on their uniforms.
About 5 pictures of groups,
25-30, service men who obviously posed for these pictures. She has found no
discharge papers for
any of them or anything that details for certain which branch of service these
men were in.
Her mother was born in 1912 and her uncles were younger siblings of her mother.
1) Do you know how we can find out which branch of service they were in?
2) Where we can identify the patches?
3) How to identify the service bars?
Any information or recommendations are appreciated.
