Andrei, I'm wondering where the LT McClure Beret is now? I'd like to get in touch with whoever has it. I was wondering if there's any chance of getting it back to LT McClure.

 

Thanks.

No closeup photos, sorry.
I also wish I'd have kept up with my badge like the one below.

Dan, I was going back through some of the old postings and came across this one of yours (see post #85) - image of Saigon Pocket Hanger..

 

I have a similar pocket hanger, but it is stamped "Ben Tre".  It came with a couple of items and berets from a TF-116 veteran.  Can you tell me what was the purpose of these pockets hangers or how they were used?

 

Thanks!

Picked A NAG beret up ages ago that looks just like the very first one in at the start of this post, but has embroidered near the ribbon what looks to be Di Duc? Duc the best translation I could do was "virtue."  Anybody know anything about the embroidery? Thanks.

Close up of insignia. Brim was cut down. I am still researching the
sailor. He was a 3 war veteran. I also purchased a number of items
from his estate I will post later. His TS are not patched out or anything
special but they have actual use and history.

Hi,
Thanks for the information. I found him on the Warboats site as well. The "togetherweserved" site sailor is a different sailor. That sailor is an " Edward" and not a
Robert L. Easley....I have a couple of his military manuals
and one of them has him serving on LCU 1498 at some point. I believe I found him listed as a crewmember on a destroyer in 1958 as well. He certainly had a lot of boat experience!

Cpt199,

 What a great tiger stripe boonie. It does not get much better than that. I like the "been there " look to it and because I collect Brown Water Navy , it is especially nice. . That is a great TRINH SAT DAC BIET (Special Reconnaissance Team ) beret flash too. Thanks for sharing.

Regards, Mitch

Thanks Mitch,
I'll be posting everything I got from this individual under the
" group" forum shortly. Hopefully this weekend. One of the
other coolest piece is his webgear.
