Hello guys, I am a WWII uniform collector but I stick with AAF uniforms for the most part but I recently purchased a very nice 13th Airborne Uniform grouping and I have a couple of questions. My knowledge of the 13th AB is very limited but if I have understand correctly the 13th never saw combat. This uniform was picked up at an estate sale from the family so I am certain that it has not be altered in any way but I am questioning why the battle stars on the ETO ribbon? I thought the 13th did mostly occupation duty but no occupation ribbon? Again my knowledge of airborne units is almost nil but I thought that to earn a jump oval the vet would have had to jump into a combat zone? I have not been able to do much research on the vet yet so I assume maybe he could have transferred from another division? His name is Leonard Joseph Fellman and he just recently passed away but lived most of his life after the war in Big Lake MN and was a well known artist. From what I understand he has art work on several US postage stamps commermorating the Civil War. Anyway...any help I could get on understanding his uniform a little better would be much appreciated. I will post a picture of his Ike jacket!
