Here is my father in Vietnam with a theater made full color 82nd Airborne Division SSI. Note the use of full color sleeve rank even thought this was taken in early 1969.

I would like to start a thread that will feature photographs of troops wearing SSI. I believe this would be a great reference for verifying patch wear and with some photos, possibly be able to show specific versions of the patches themselves. I invite other collectors to post photographs of troops wearing SSI. These can be portraits, photos in the field, etc..... Let's see them!

Major General Keller E. Rockey (seated), Commanding General, III Marine Amphibious Corps, along with Brigadier General William A. Worton (to his left) accepting the surrender of 50,000 Japanese troops in Tientsin China on behalf of the Chinese Nationalist government, 6 October 1945. I picked this photo up with a picture of their Japanese counterparts and a nice felt III MAC. :thumbsup:
