US. 5th Army Artillery Service Tunic

Single-breasted, dark olive drab wool tunic with a four button front closure, an open collar with lay-down lapels, a patch pocket to each breast, and two large hip pockets. A pair of brass insignia is attached to each collar point representing the U.S. Artillery. The buttons to the front closure, and the smaller versions of these to the integral shoulder straps and the straight-edged pocket flaps, are all of convex, gilt-colored alloy with the coat-of-arms of the United States embossed against their horizontally ribbed backgrounds. Insignia representing the 5th US Army is sewn below the left shoulder seam along with the rank patch of Sergeant, while a ruptured duck is sewn above the right breast pocket. Sewn to the left arm are five overseas bars representing 2 1/2 years with the rank of Sergeant. A stamp showing the size as "37L" is sewn to the interior. The tunic shows little age and is overall a nice tunic.
