I am looking for the white pants worn by enlisted medical personnel and food service (among others) during the 1960's They were cotton and had buttons only, no zipper. I have the white medical smock (cotton buttons, maroon caduceus & US on right pocket). This was the uniform worn by most enlisted personnel in a hospital or clinic setting. The Army shows a picture on its Office of Medical History Website. Information on where to start the search would be appreciated.


I was on active duty with the 4780th Hospital at Perrin AFB, Texas 1965-1967 and this was the uniform most enlisted medical personnel wore.

P.S. when whites and 505's were laundered starch was used. Cotton/polyester fabric, thankfully eliminated the use of starch.
