Hello, I am helping a friend find info on her dad, can someone help me identify which branch of the military he was in?

She says she remembers hearing that he was in some kind of transport, and that he "lost a tank". Any help on how to research this?

Thanks!

Admin note:

It's always easier for someone to help if they know where in the world and when the person was born/lived.

A name would be helpful. But from the photo it looks like a US Marine Corps wool Ike jacket with just barely visible Sgt. chevrons on the arm. Considering the ribbons over the left pocket, I'd say the photo dates from late WW-2 to sometime after the end of the war. I've attached a photo of a simlar jacket
