Vietnam camo...Duck Hunter

In 1964 I was at Bragg and went to Fatalburg and bought a set of Duck Hunter Camo at Sears & Roebuck on Hayes Street. I have a picture of me wearing them if I can find it. I am sure they had two upper chest pockets and burst-of-glory buttons. Caught Hell from the chicken shinola Bn.XO and told to get-rid of them. I gave them to a friend headed for MI school at Devens, no doubt latter The Nam.

 

USAF BG Heini Aderholt, "Air Commando 1" gave me photos 30+ years ago. Subject was 1st Air Commando pilots, circa 1964 I believe, standing in front of their A1 Skyraiders wearing Duck Hunter camo, two bottom pockets, pen pocket of left chest, "burst of glory" buttons. They also wore Duck Hunter Camo snap up cowboy hats with, of all things, Thai Joint General Staff pins on the front. Not to mention S&W .357 magnum revolvers in the gunfighter rigs. The Air Commandos were a world unto themselves. I was TDY with them in 1965.

 

Thanks to all y'all going to the trouble of sending us those GREAT pictures. BILL

Here’s a nice KAmo brand shirt with the typical buttons found on a box from my garage

The cloth is very soft

Never seen one before on another jacket

I picked this up several years ago from the rose bowl flea market from a rag dealer and it was under $20 but to me it was worth a thousand as I love stuff like this !
