The photo is of veteran John Kouman, also known as "the Nose" in 2002. He was a member of the 807th Tank Destroyer Battalion, which received credit for campaigns in Rhineland, the Ardennes and Central Europe. The quality of the original photo was not very good but his ribbons seem to be the Good Conduct (behind the lapel), American Defense, American Campaign, Army of Occupation, WWII Victory and EAME Ribbon. He has some type of shooting badge, which I believe is the Expert version. Photo courtesy of Randy Theisen.
The man standing with the "807" sign is identified as Company A's Robert L. Martin. The sign was a river identification and not relating to his unit, the 807th. Photo courtesy of Charlotte Buchanan.
