USMC 1943 Identification Disks

I bought these USMC Identification Disks on e-bay because I thought they were a nice textbook example. Since purchasing them, I've discovered the following information about Owen Glenn Brantley:

Jul 1942 Rank: Private First Class Station: Vmf-212, Marairgroup-21, 2Nd Marairwing, Fmf., %Fpo. San Francisco, California.

Oct 1942 Rank: Sergeant Station: Marine Fighting Squadron Two-Twelve, First Marine Aircraft Wing Fleet Marine Force, C/O F.P.O., San Francisco, California

Oct 1943 Rank: Master Technical Sergeant Station: Marine Fighting Squadron-114, Marine Aircraft Group-23, Maha C/O Fleet Post Office, San Francisco, California

Jul 1944 Rank: Master Technical Sergeant Station: Cas Co #1, Mb, Nob, Ti, (San Pedro), Calif At U S Naval Hospital, Corona, Calif

This information comes from friends on USMF and I will continue to research the set as time permits.
