WWII Jacket

Authentic WWII military issue coat I picked up at the Sacramento Antique Faire, and what a find that it actually fits! A hat would be swell, yet even alone what a piece of history! This gal served as a Technician Corporal in the Ninth District (Western States). That’s all I know about her, and that she wore a size 12R. I have zero military experience so I hope those credentials were stated correctly. Looked up the patches in a search engine. Presently to complete the look with an authentic uniform and footwear is costing about $400 on eBay, on another day it may be closer to $200. Out of today’s budget even if finding the right size is a gem.
