  1. Does anyone know why the star is on this jacket?
  2. Yeah I just got them but I think I'm only keeping the pants.
  3. thanks, i appreciate the insight. I just noticed the button colors are different between the shirt and pants. And the stamp on the pants as US-Medium. Is that typical that the size is spelled out(US-M vs US-Medium)?

I'm sure most of know.... Rather than kick me to the curb, he graciously invited me in and we spoke for a couple hours. I was surprised to find out that he was Armenian, and that both his parents were from Baghdad. The card is of Al treating a wounded Lt that had been shot in the neck by a German sniper.
