Walt,

Very impressive. There seems to be one more ribbon than medals. I'm not a medals guy, and I was wondering if you knew why?

Clay,

Thanks for the positive response. And for identifying the white on the uniform as a fern leaf. I didn't know if it was a mark on the photo or not.

Wouldn't a Guards Brigade, regardless of the number, be senior to a brigade formed from infantry of the line? I'm sure anyone who was / is a Guardsman would agree.

Taken together, I would venture U.S. Naval Academy class of '75.

Awfully good shape for such an old badge so I could be wrong.
