WW2 US Army Enlisted Visor Hat 'On to Victory' Size 7 1/8

Cheyenne, Wyoming was the home of Fort Francis E. Warren, a United States Army/USAAF facility. During World War II, Fort Warren was the training center for up to 20,000 soldiers of the Quartermaster Corps. More than 280 wooden buildings were constructed without insulation and interior walls to temporarily house the increased number of troops. In the harsh Wyoming winter, waking up in these barracks often meant shaking snow from one's blanket before heading for the just-as-cold communal showers. A prisoner of war camp was also constructed there at that time. It was converted into a USAF Base shortly after WW2.
Has some aging to the leather sweatband and light wear to the visor (see pics) otherwise fairly pristine.
