Unidentified Staff Sergeant, 97th Infantry Division


Unidentified Staff Sergeant, 97th Infantry Division


Black and white image of a man in a World War II Army uniform. Museum records identify him as a Staff Sergeant, 97th Infantry Division, and a war hero, according to the ribbons and medals on his uniform. He wears a dark jacket and shirt with a lighter tie, and a forage cap. Several bars pinned over his left pocket indicate honors received, and three medals hang below that, including a Purple Heart, indicating he was wounded in battle with an enemy. He is not identified in museum records, but 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.
