LHO's DD1173

Recommended Posts

Among the items taken from LHO was a military ID card DD1173, which is the same type of DOD military ID card found on Gary Powers when he was shot down over USSR.

Among the anomalies of this card, besides being partially destroyed by the FBI during testing for fingerprints, the card was issued in September 1959 by an officer, who was granted a special clearance to handle classified Secret records on the same day, odd because he himself left active service for the reserves shortly thereafter.

Another anomally is the photo on the ID was taken of Oswald in USSR, months after the card was supposidly issued.

While one of the best investigators hired by the ARRB Doug Horne (who has a book in the works), reviewed the matter and wrote a series of reports, many of the discrepencies remain unresolved.

While Jean Davison says she hasn't read her book Oswald's Game recently, she apparently reviewed many of the records released under the JFK Act and the ARRB reports, as her archives are cited as the source for the JFKPlace reports by Horne.

While others may know of more research done on this subject (by Paul Hoch / RCD?), I think this is the extent of it, as of now.

Although I started this topic under the History Books - Jean Davison's Oswald's Game thread, I bring it here and hope that Jean will stick around to discuss her opinions on it and what it all means.

In addition, I think DD1173 is the type of ID that could get a military serviceman on a Military Air Transport - MAT flight on standby status, when a seat is available, which could explain the leg of LHO journey from England to Finland on his defection trip.

So while it might not answer assassination questions, it could expain that minor mystery.
