A nice and complete USMC Service Uniform. The tunic with ribbon bars and medals and the pants are named to a Iwo Jima veteran, who served at both Guadalcanal and Iwo Jima during World War 2. The tunic has a rare 1st Division Guadalcanal patch.
The garrison cap with the wellknown bronze USCM insignia (Eagle, Globe and Anchor), the khaki shirt with Corporal patches and matching tie and the black leather service shoes are all original USMC, but the items are not from the same veteran.

General information about the USMC Service Uniform
The service uniform consists of green and khaki colors. It is the prescribed uniform when serving on a court-martial, making official visits and calls on American and foreign dignitaries, officials, and military officers, visiting the White House (except when in a tourist capacity, or on an occasion where another uniform is specified) or reporting for duty onshore. Like the Blue Dress uniform, the service uniform is authorized for wear while off-duty (i.e., while on leave or liberty).
