    Hey!

    I'm new to this forum and came here to get this jacket identified. It belonged to my Great-Grandfather, Albert Hargraves, who fought in WWII (fought in Africa and France), and served in the Texas National Guard for 30 years after the war. I'd like to get this jacket identified, as I have no idea what era it's from.

    Could you guys tell?
