I picked up four helmets from a retired Navy captain who spent 30 years as a flight surgeon and F4 Phantom RIO, flying combat missions with VF-154 from USS Ranger, in some of the last US Navy strikes of the war in Dec. 1972 and Jan. 1973.
He spent most of this Navy career in a reserve squadron, VF-302, and I have a couple of helmets from that squadron, but I wanted to find out if this helmet is something issued around 1970?????
Photos or the other helmets and flight gear are at http://www.usmilitar...f4-phantom-rio/
The red stripes on this go with the red stripes on the VF-154 Phantoms.
