Just picked me up a 2d Cavalry Ike jacket. I think it might be my size, too. When it gets here, I'll try to get a picture or two wearing it.

You can see better pictures of it here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/272355560794

The jacket belonged to Sgt. James J. Roepke, 6981st Rifle Company (Provisional). Just a week prior to the end of the war in Europe, his unit was attached to the 2d Cavalry Group's 42d Squadron and designated Troop D, 42d Squadron. This was the only time during WW II that the 2d Cavalry had a Troop D, and only in the 42d Squadron.
