Default Help identify heirloom from Grandpa

Hello to all as I am new to this site. I think I am in the correct forum, if not please advise mod to move my post.
Currently live in South Louisiana and inherited a revolver that was used by my Grandpa. He used it to kill pigs while making sausage. I got the revolver about 10 years ago. He passed away before I was born, ole mule kicked him in the chest, he passed before they could get him to Charity Hospital in New Orleans. Damn mule...
Looking for any information about the revolver so that I can pass this down to my sons.
See attached pics.
.38 caliber.
Hand ejector style.
This is what we see on the piece;
Serial number on the butt: 25087. The last 3 digits are hard to read, may be incorrect.
Stamped on the barrel:
38S&WSPECIAL CTG'S
US SERVICE

Stamped on the top of the barrel are what appears to be some dates, but too worn to read and I dare not try to clean it up to read at this point.
Barrel length: 4 inches
Stamped on the yoke: F 288.
Sights are fixed.

Thank you for any input.
