I didn't know exactly where to post this picture. I'm assuming this was taken in Vietnam since that's General Creighton W. Abrams on the left. It's interesting to me because I don't think I've ever seen a female wearing jungle fatigues, even in Vietnam.

Looks like a Spec 7????

I was thinking the same thing! Spec/7 photos aren't easy to find.

 

 

Korean knock-off Vietnam jungle boots too?

 

No reason they couldn't be US issue. Green jungle boots were issued up through the early 1990's when they were finally replaced by all-black speed laced jungle boots. I was issued green jungle boots in 1st SFG in 1990.

Mixture of jungle fatigues with subdued rank and OG-107s worn by members of the Kentucky National Guard's 2nd Battalion 138th Artillery during pre-deployment training at Fort Hood after being mobilized in 1968 and before being sent to Vietnam later that year.

The description of the jungle jacket says patches have been added to the outline.

 

So I wouldn't take the patches being on there as being legit.

Right, for all we know that shoulder patch, the small circle, may have been the in country 1st Log Cmd.
