Large grouping of items relating  to SFC. Larry G. Mills. SFC. Mills served with the 5th & 7th SFG. SFC. Mills completed  pre-deployment RVN training with 7th SFG at Ft. Bragg in May, 1966 & Radix lists him being stationed with 5th SFG detachment A-241 (Polei Kleng) from January, 1967 - June, 1968. Second tour in Vietnam in 1971-1972  as a FANK Advisor at the Long Hai Training Battalion (also advisor on rebuild of the ARVN 21th & 39th Ranger Battalions, along with the 56th Infantry Regiment in May-June, 1972).  I'll add some better photos over the next few days.

Fantastic group.

 

That clothing lot had many hidden gems and sold for a good price.

 

Has any of the duck hunting camo been modified?
