Wandering is SOP in this industry. I fully understood that a minimum one hour conversation was part of the price of any parts I purchased from Jack Tomlin. Payment in full before I saw the part. At least we answer the question first here. :D

Hey I think this is what he was asking about- a period US Army uniform, circa 1969.
I have some more if that would help! LOL

Rick, one reason I am smiling may be that I had just finished with my VN tour a few months before.
As you may be able to tell if you know your uniforms, I was a Major General's Aide de Camp. The photo was taken at the American Embassador's residence in Rio de Janerio, Brazil 1969/1970 which may be another reason I was smiling-
One other explanation is that I ended my 7 years in the Army down there and thus :D :D :D :D avoided a second and third tour flying gunships in VN.

Great picture Captain. I thought he was interested in Cammie's or "BDU'S" or "fatigues". Heck I don't know.

Raymond, I like your animated figure and will need to find out how you put it on your posts.

Was thinking about this, this morning and thought it might be a good thread to post on seeing how it was originally an inquiry about dessert uniforms from the 80s.

When the six color "chocolate chip" camo uniform was standard issue, I know they made boonie hats with wide brims to be worn with, but has anyone seen a real issue patrol cap in that pattern? I've seen plenty of commercial copies and plenty of the later three color dessert pattern but, I've never actually seen a real-deal six color dessert camo patrol cap. Or the USMC cover in choc chip for that matter.

I've seen boonie caps and helmet covers but, since you mentioned it, I don't recall ever seeing any other head gear in the chocolate-chip pattern.

[edit]

Guess I spoke too soon. But, given the rank of the individuals in the photo, I think we can still say they were pretty rare.

aren't those guys Air Force?
the velcro, leather name tags and AF master pilot wings on the BG would seem to indicate it, no?
