Hello everyone,
I posted this on Facebook but I thought Id post it here as well. I found a cool piece at the swap meet. The lady I bought it from said her uncle served in Vietnam with the 101st Airborne and sent this home to her when she was in 1st grade.

She gave me her uncles name but didnt have any other info on him. She said she has a photo of him at home holding the parachute that was used to make the dress.

My daughter put it on to model it.07E540BA-FAB3-4153-8CAC-931C2D07163A.jpeg

Saw this when you posted it on the Facebook page.

 

I think it's a great piece.
