    That's Hae-byung dae, the Korean Marines.

    If it is from Vietnam, they were stationed out of Da Nang; otherwise, they are garrisoned on the outskirts of Seoul.

    So actually it looks like it's actually Korean War vintage, from a USMC member. Found another shirt from same guy today that is WW2 vintage.

    I don't think the Koreans had a military during World War II as they were under Japanese occupation. The RoK Marines weren't formed until 1949.
