Ok, this is not my area of interest but I was wandering on Flickr and bumped into some cool pics of Beezman's faves so I decided to open this thread.
Here is the first post :

Hey No problem I found these in a box while cleaning my office while I was suppose to be working on a paper for school, and though hey these be neat, but I better check to see if anyone else started a thread, dont wanna step on toes :)
Yea AF stuff doesnt get the respect it deserves!! I had a chance to buy a huge Para Rescue photo group but couldnt afford it, too bad it had some awsom pix of guys in Tigers and ERDLs and the guys cert from RECONDO school too, really neat stuff :)

Camo Jungle uniforms were first in the supply system in 1968, & AF Security were the First to be issued the new camo uniforms.

Phu Cat was a Fantom base, & when I visted there in 1968 > thought I was back in the States > all buildings were red Brick, streets paved with street Lights, & concret Sidewalks > the AF was living good!

Funny how the beret patch looks eerily familiar to the one worn today by the Security Forces!

True !!!

Few collectors focus on SP uniforms despite some units really had hard times in VN.

Thanks for this thread !
