106th Transportation Battalion "Instructor Driver" Leather Pocket Hanger


Recommended Posts

Nice piece, my dad has a few of those pocket hangers from when he was a driving instructor and check driver with the 28th Trans Bn in Germany in the early 2000s. What I found interesting was that the unit crests on the pocket hangers from my dad were bigger than the regular unit crests he had to wear on his beret or on his ear plug case.

WANTED

Interesting that they were still doing that with what'd I'd presume were BDUs. Seems like they'd hang easier from one button. Are they still leather?

 

And yeah, this one seems a little bigger then a standard DUI as well.

Yeah it was back in the BDU days, and if I remember correctly it was adorned from the button closest to the middle of the jacket but I'm drawing a blank on which pocket it was worn (I'm wanting to say right). And they were also made of leather.
