Top flight suit is one of the ones I wore while flying with the 7th ACCS from Jan 1980 to Mar 1984. Bottom one was issued to me is 1991-92 time frame when I first became part of the 9thAF/USCENTAF ACE program. We never wore a baseball hat with this; only the standard flight hat

 

I had a couple scarves for the ABCCC flight suit but don't know where they are. During my time with ABCCC, we went through several different versions of a flight suit scarf. We started with a bright red one with white crosshatch pattern in a sort of tight check pattern. Next was a similar red one with thin white lines in a wider check/box pattern. Finally the Commander settled on a solid burgundy color for our scarves and we also got a baseball hat in the same color with 7ACCS on the front. I don't know where the hat has gotten to.

OK, here are the items I found in the old wardrobe box....all are from my Marine days. Top are my two issue green uniforms. I had little opportunity to wear them and, in actuality, only wore one; the other was never worn. The reason I never wore one of them is that it came issued with brown buttons (three other Marines also got a brown buttoned service blouse in boot camp). The DI told us to cut the brown buttons off and replace them with black but I never did; hence I never wore it. That's why it also never had any chevrons on it.

 

Middle pic is of one of my issue tropical wool shirts and trousers. The khaki trousers are no longer issued. You can see that the trousers are much darker than the shirt.

 

Finally, the bottom pic shows two more pair of khaki tropical wool trousers. These two were never worn and you can see that the color is closer to the shirt in the pic above it.

Finally, the last two pix: Top is two of my khaki cotton short sleeve shirts. Bottom are two pair of my khaki cotton trousers. That's about it unless/until I come across more stuff in other boxes.

Paul,

 

We had a discussion about Swackhammer in one of your threads. He was an instructor at Benning when i went through Ranger School and later he came through the Light Leaders Course with the 25th ID when I was an instructor.

USMCRECON: Great uniforms, I'm glad you drug them out. :thumbsup: Sorry to see that you covered up your rack on your USMC Greens. It looks like one to be proud of. Thanks for your years of service.

...and thank you as well.

 

I didn't cover it intentionally....just how the stuff happened to sort out while trying to get both sets in one photo. I didn't even think about the ribbons being covered or not at the time because that was not the focus of the shot.

Very nice Stinger! I like the footlocker approach, and you remind me that I need to get my service uniforms upgraded and squared away. Going to need to spend the extra money on getting them so, with additional service stripes, upgraded/new ribbon racks, etc...

apparently my mother found 3 male mannequins for under 100 bucks for the lot, I just need to figure out how to get them to SC from NY without making the costs excessive. since I'm not a big uniform collector, I figure I'll build one with my OIF gear...so I'll post that when it happens

I seemed to have heard that more than a few times in my life. Very rarely did it have a positive connotation behind it :lol:

 

Here's most of mine. Only missing my Jungle OG's. Last I saw them, they were in my mothers storage shed. So no telling what or how they are these days. I know I had already shown the mannequin, but I keep adding to it as I have dug up more stuff while cleaning out the garage. Seems I hadn't thinned out the footlockers as much as I had originally thought. :blink:

I wasn't as nostalgic with my army uniforms and all as I should have been. I kept my coins and love me wall stuff. Thanks to ebay I was able to keep my ACH, as I turned in the ebay replacement to CIF when I got out.

I got to keep mine, when I demobbed, CIF told me they didnt want it back, and my unit didnt want it because it wasnt on their books.

B-8-1... Harmony Church... Down my CIF. Haven't been there for years. I went there for the Infantry Mortar Platoon Course (IMPC) back in 87 and ran into one of my old Drills... was a great experience.
