Salty 1964 M1 helmet cover


Recommended Posts

Just got this helmet cover dated 1964 that is pretty salty. I really like the look of this one and like how it was put on. The helmet was mine before so i matched the stress marks at the base of the helmet cover. It also has the slits cut in the base for the chinstrap loops to fit through. It also has two letters of graffiti on the side. It either is AO for Area of Operations or HO for Ho Chi Minh. Just thought i would share.

" The war news continues to be the best ever. We're licking the tar out of the Germans and I'm a live part of it. The spirit of the boys is great and they are brimming over with confidence. These are stirring times and regardless of my personal outcome I'm glad to be a part of it."
