Waiting to Inhale

I noticed the USMC belt buckle and the web belt tab just past the first belt loop. A Google search for "25th Service Group" finds "The 25th Marines was activated on 1 May 1943, at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina and was initially manned by Marines from throughout the Northeast. The regiment was subsequently assigned to the 4th Marine Division for service in World War II."
