Crazy good finds, Paul! The black boonie is killer. What are the metal wings to the front? Couldn't quite make it out.

 

Look forward to seeing some more photos on the site...Really enjoyed the interview you posted with Billy Waugh by the way. What a guy, and a hard charger! I'll definitely be picking up his book for sure.

 

Hope all is well,

 

Will

Those tigers!!


The paint stripping of M1 helmets, particularly protestor helmets, is destruction of history by the very men who claim to protect it.
Always looking for gear and items linked to the following: Joe S. Tamura US Army; Ken Tamura 442nd RCT; Capt. Emerson US Army Medical Corps, Norman Albert Wells Fifth Infantry Division

I was going to comment on the lush surroundings. Very nice, I figured these shots were not done in Louisville, or at least not near the Laquinta Hotel where me and Bill B were staying.

The flora and fauna are a bit more exotic than at Beltring (you could use those palms to "dress" your hooch!) Great haul!

The wing on the hat appears to be the LLDB version of ARVN jump wings (feathers different from the Abn Div/gen purpose ones.
