  1. Another great place to visit if you collect East German militaria: http://www.facebook.com/groups/EastGermanCollectors
  2. It's taken me some years, but I've finally gotten representative examples of Saudi rank patches (Colonel) in OPC from the USMTM, OPM-SANG, and MOI-MAG. Kevin
  3. 397th Military Police Service Battalion https://www.usarmygermany.com/Sont.htm?https&&&www.usarmygermany.com/Units/MilitaryPolice/USAREUR_7747MPGp.htm
  4. Here is a photo from a few years ago of a Pershing Rifleman wearing the tab on the Army Combat Uniform (ACU).
  5. Some Pershing Rifles units still wear the tab on the current OCP uniform and previously on the ACU and BDU. However Army ROTC does not officially authorize its wear. To learn more about the National Society of Pershing Rifles see their website at: https://pershingriflessociety.org and my Pershing Rifles History webpage at: http://pershingrifles.wordpress.com
  6. Al, it looks like a great book, can't wait to get my hands on it! Kevin
  7. It's nice to see this desert uniform tread revived, those are some great DCUs and DBDU. Patched DBDUs with name tapes seam to be getting harder and harde to find.
  8. It looks like a blood chit. Originals normally have a serial # in all four corners.
  9. I was there both days, my first time with a table. It was well worth it, lots of good conversations and more time to look at other seller's wares.
  10. I'm looking for just 28 pogs and then I'll have a complete set.
  11. Great insignia, it a match to the badges made by the sew show outside MacDill AFB. Kevin
  12. Yes, I have a weakness for 10th Mountain Division (LI) and riggers, as Al does with anything Third Army related because of the WWI connection. Al is still trying to wrap his head around Third Army becoming US Army Central (USARCENT) and divisions which are now separate brigades. The division and brigade chapters were very painful for Al. lol And a shameless plug, with Christmas around the corner "Desert Uniforms, Patches, and Insignia of the US Armed Forces" would make a great gift for for the collector or desert era veteran.
  13. That's a great background article on the 156th Quartermaster Command. There is even a desert version of the patch for the 156th even though it long ceased to exist by the time that desert patches were authorized in the late 1990s. This one is in my book, "Desert Uniforms, Patches, and Insignia of the US Armed Forces". The wear of this patch was short lived as the unit was converted to the 156th Support Group in 1972. At the time Groups were not authorized to wear a patch, so the unit would have worn the patch if its parent command.
