The "JWS Tiger" he is asking about is "John Wayne Sparse". I know many around here object to Johnson's names, but I don't know the alternative name to "translate".

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here's a thousand pictures!

I have a box of camouflage that my dad brought back from the war after his 2nd tour late 1968. I noticed some of the cammo looks like a hunting pattern here in the USA. My dad said it was given to him by a Korean soldier. I have a boonie hat that he had the Hawk Recon scroll sewn on it for use in the rear area. I amazed at how damn skinny my dad was in those years of his life. Would you believe he ran a mile in 4:30 wearing fatigues and jungle boots at RECONDO school. Tom was among the first 100 graduates of the school.

I got the set from 2 different buys over a period of a year
Inside the pants and shirt were little love letters to a child from a doting parent making the set a little bit special
Here’s
I miss you
