This is the uniform of Emil J Cernok, born 1917 and passed 1988 in Quakertown PA.

It is a WW II Technical Sergeants uniform, with a 20th AIR Army patch, US and AAF collar brass, 2 Asiatic-Pacific Campain bars, one with 2 bronze service stars, a Victory bar with 1 bronze star, a Army Good Conduct bar, a American Defense bar, and one unknown that I would like to id. :confused:..thanks...ps it's the bar on the group of 3 on the bottom left the blue on the bar looks more greenish in real life.
