Just thought I would post something a little newer for something different than I usually do. The great uniform lot belonged to Maj. Thomas Purvis of Indiana. His service dates back to 1958 as an enlistedman. In 1962 he went to Artillery OCS and by 1966 he was at Bien Hoa with II Field Force as an FO. He stayed in the regular Army several years then went to the Ready Reserve with 95th MTC. I don't collect much US Army Vietnam items but of those I have this is a complete one that I really enjoy. This was the first time I had run across one of these Vietnam printed garment bags as well.

I also have that same Vietnam garment bag. I have seen them come up from time to time, and I am guessing it was some kind of novelty item.
