  2. great helmet the wear and tear on it is real, love the old paint job on it
  3. had it on my watch list, missed the ending great helmet ! semper fi
  4. i wish every helmet had a recorded story to go with it, to me, you are keeping history alive with this helmet and news clipings when you think of the times you did things, and yet there is no recording of it, you feel great you did it, but feel something is missing that the future people would never know about how things were done to get the job done compared today doing it your helmet is super fantastic, the painted tiger is great ! semper fi
