Hi everyone. Found this erdl j.j. On eBay while looking around. Couldn’t be able to find any info on the soldier. What do you think? If it is genuine with orig. patches it should be really rare. First time I see a j.j. With Cambodian parachutist badge for sale.

This is a case of if it looks too good to be real, it probably is.

 

The left shoulder patch for MEDTC is for the USAF element.  The patch design has a questionable history as I've yet to see an example of it actually being worn, but it would most likely not be worn by a US Army NCO. 

 

I don't know that the KHMER Republic scroll was worn by US personnel either. 

 

Save your money... walk away from this one.

GWB why you’re saying that the MEDTC patch was worn only by USAF?I think too is strange that us soldier wear Khmer Republic scroll. I’m trying to find some info about this kusch to see if maybe his service records coincide with some patches on that jacket but nothing.

There were other MEDTC patches that army personnel wore. I’ve never seen the AF version subdued.

 

I’ve seen a Khmer scroll worn but not the one on this uniform.

 

As has been stated by knowledgeable collectors, this is a put together that’s all over the place.

I think one of our members designed the army MEDTC patch. 
 

Here are some I have. The white scroll I’ve seen on UITG/FANK uniforms.

Here's a discussion of the patch for the USAF MEDTC element.

 

There is no documentation that it was worn by Army personnel.
