Brought this to SOS a few years back and could not get a positive ID on this. Just came across it again and thought I would share it here. What I do know is it's likely Vietnam period (appears to be Vietnamese or Japanese made). And the last two letters - FE - stand for Far East.

 

I'm open to any thoughts or suggestions as to what this is.

 

Thanks!

Jack

Been awhile since I did an internet search and since then some more info has been added. Just punched in CCRAFE online and found it to stand Combined Command for Reconnaissance Activities, Far East - 8177th Army Unit. Stationed in Japan after transferring from Korea (then CCRAK).

 

I suppose that would make this a rather uncommon shirt...

I've heard bowling shirt before...

 

The characters on the tag look japanese or chinese. Anyone here know for sure?

 

This piece came out of a military musuem that was downsizing their collection.
