I've seen pics of early USMC advisors wearing these types of jackets early during the vietnam war

This is what my great uncle did. My mother’s maiden name is Tchakirides and he was a gunnery Sgt Kia by friendly artillery. This might have been on of his early jackets.

That’s crazy if it is his jacket. There’s a couple laundry numbers but not sure if it’s his or the previous owners. Be cool to confirm if it was in fact his

I looked online and found his service number. I’ll look in th Jacket to see if there’s a number that matches or has a portion of it. 

Here it is incase you don’t have it.....
