You could dress him in German SS uniform and lay weapons at his feet and raise his arms above his head.

You could have him in Class A's at the local USO or Officer's club, waiting in line to use the restroom.

Personally, I like Glen's Tanker idea...

I say forget the hands in pockets which would be too difficult to do and go with a low slung pistol or cartridge belt with his hands resting on it (with belt between thumbs and fingers) and a helmet cocked to the side. Definitely a cig as well. He'd be the most relaxed looking G.I. on the block!

This guy was just walking down Tu Do Street in Saigon when he saw this 'lady' walking past. Long story short, he is made for leaning up against the wall, all you need to find now is a lady mannequin ;)

I could see him in two different type of clothes. Civvies late 60ies to early 70ies. Only way to see he is SF is the WAR necklace and the hint of a concealed carry. Setup #2 would be as a cocky fly boy, aviator glasses and the hole shoobang :)
