Unidentified Signal Corpsman, with service ribbons


Black and white image of an unidentified man in what museum records state is a Signal Corpsman uniform. He wears a number of insignia, medal bars, and rank emblems. A unit patch is not quite visible on his upper left arm, and another patch on his left shoulder. The three chevrons with a 'T' patch indicate he was a technician, third grade, equivalent to today's 'specialist' rank. The glare of the flash prevents the rest of his insignia from being readily identified. Signal Corpsmen were responsible for maintaining communications in the military. This photo is part of the Herbert E. McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life, people, and locations in Washington County and northwest Oregon.
