Blue Ike Jacket
The popular olive drab Ike jacket worn in WWII by U.S. Army and Army Air Force service members was duplicated in air force blue when the U.S. Air Force became a separate service. It was authorized for wear from 1947 to 1964. This jacket has a zipper sewn in over the original button front.
The original wearer of the jacket was a Delaware native who, as a young enlisted man, was a radio operator during the Korean War stationed on an island near Alaska.
