    A friend bought a storage unit at auction & I bought this from him which was in it. I thought it was military dress uniform, but a friend told me he thought it was from a military school or academy - and said the green with red dots lapel pins on shoulders wasn't U.S. military?
    If it is real, what branch is it from? What years?
    Thank you in advance!

    What is the motto on the epaulet badges? Facia cum Ho___.

    Armored Cavalry badge on the front. That's a full on dress uniform too; I don't think all soldiers have those.

    This was also in the unit - I just didn't put it together with the military uniform.

    I found info on the manufacturer. They made uniforms during Viet Nam and then again later after 2003 - now. I think this was made in the second time period.

    Hubby says Service Dress is with medals, not ribbons. This would be for a dress inspection or formal function whereas a Service Dress is fancier.
