BODY ARMOR WORN WHILE STATIONED IN BERLIN
Posted 12 February 2012 - 08:33 AM
Now I mentioned before that I really did not pay too much attention to the vest in Berlin, but when I got it out of the closet in November, I noticed the manufactuers tag, and nomenclature and noticed that it was an M1952 A Vest thst was made just a year after the end of the Korean war. As seen by the tag it was made 23 April 1954.
There has been a lot of topics posted lately about vintage equipment still being used by the military, and this was just another example of equipment being used and in this case some 30 plus years later.
Hope you enjoy the pictures. This post has a two fold purpose. First I wanted to show you my body armor from my time in Berlin, (86-90) and secondly, my old computer gave out and I jjust bought a new laptop and had to check and see if my camera software loaded correctly on the new laptop so I can start posting pictures again..
Here is the first of 3 pictures..
