Mike Force gold tiger suits that are named are hard to find and this one came direct from the vet.

More of this suit and story will be in my camouflage book.

thought you folks might like my new SOG related Tiger purchase. A nice modified "over the fence" jacket, as I am sure you all know thesis a rare beast... this was custom tailored by SIG veteran Robert A. Bradow along with his 1-0 vest. I have his badge team jacket and beret on the way so will pos that too... its not Tiger though!

Yep first pattern tigers, soldiers name is apparently Sgt Joe E Jasper. There is another good one from same article of Msgt Wayne Whightsil fording a river in the same kit, tigers and early cowboy hat, both Special Forces.

 

AG

 

And here's that photo of M/Sgt Wayne Whightsil.

Great photo right.

 

As unbelievable as it might sound, I can find no other info on him other than stuff related to this photo, and the fact that he has passed in 2008 at 83. Even his Obit doesn't say anything on this old soldiers service, and this is from a Fayetteville NC paper, you know Fayetteville= Fort Bragg.

 

 

Whightsil, Wayne, 83, Fayetteville, 12:30 p.m., Reeves Funeral Home chapel in Hope Mills. Burial in Sandhills State Veterans Cemetery in Spring Lake.
