Vietnam-era helmet in service - with Yogi Bear cartoon on back!


Recommended Posts

Thought I'd share this fun slide I just found in a box of slides from a vet's Vietnam service. Someone flying with a helmet with a Yogi Bear cartoon painted on the back! Never thought about painting fun stuff on your helmet!

Oh, tarry and be strong; Tell God in prayer. What is thy hidden grief; Thy secret care.

Yet, if no answer come; Pray on and wait: God's time is always best; Never too late.

I LOVE Yogi Bear! Am making felt play food in a Yogi Bear picnic basket, actually!

Cool APH-5 helmet. Id imagine his last name or a call sign was Bear. Wonder if he got to keep his helmet/art afterwards. Almost a field gear post as well, can see his M-1956 pistol belt slung over the armored seat.
