This is a great late 1940's 511th Airborne "Tour" jacket with huge chenille patches sewn into it. The Jacket is from 511th Paratrooper (Airborne Infantry) Squad. The patch sewn into the left breast is of a parachute. In the parachute reads "OMER." On the right breast, there is an upside-down triangle with a Japanese-style gate in it along with crossed swords and a sun to either side of the triangle. There is a banner underneath that reads "STRENGTH FROM ABOVE"
