Unbelievable opportunity and something that has been the centerpiece of my collection for a long time. An identified P41 jacket belonging to Bar Gunner William A Ranous who served with E/2/28 and was wounded on Iwo Jima which was the unit that made it to the top of Mt Suribachi and raised the flag. Identified 5th Marine Division UNIS marked items rarely are offered for sale and finding anything attributed to E/2/28 is next to impossible. In addition, this jacket has been published in Harlan Glenn's book as shown in photos. Jacket is in excellent condition and has Ranous's name stamped twice with clear UNIS markings. His complete file is included. There are also photos and an interview that I found online. Also posted is a photo of the house he grew up in. If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to ask. POR
