Just a guess on the "03 42" reference to his sharpshooter qualification.You might want to check, but I don't think the M1 Garrand was in wide distribution as yet--so I am inclined to believe that 03 refers to the bolt action Springfield M-1903 rifle--and his qualification date would be 1942----just a hunch.
