LATE ARMY GROUPING:  Consists of Name and Army tapes; two rank patches; 6 ribbon bars.  The two Army Meritorious Unit Commendation bars are still in the original plastic packages.  All are post type fasteners and all have the clutchback nuts with them.  I believe this group will date after 1981 because of the Army Service Ribbon bar.

GROUPING, 47th INFANTRY DIVISION, MINNESOTA ARMY NATIONAL GUARD. "THE VIKINGS".  CAMP RUCKER, ALABAMA, 1951:
There is a LP record of the Minnesota Army National Guard.  It is dirty and not played, but I did not notice any damage to it so it should play OK.  There is the History Book from 1951 about the 47th Infantry Division.  It has some cover issues but the inside looks ok.  There is some foxing on some pages.  I did not notice any tears etc. but I did not look at each page.  There is a plastic ash tray with the Viking crest in the center.  It is well used, dirty and has burned areas.  A Viking sleeve patch.  An unnamed Good Conduct Medal with early small ribbon and slotted broach.  A Combat infantry Badge marked STERLING.  Pictured without the clasp nuts but it will come with them.  An Expert Qualification Badge with Rifle Bar.  Both pieces hallmarked and also marked STERLING.  There is more information in text on the photos; take a look!
