2002 CGF MICH helmet

Came from the Fort Bragg area. Purchased directly from the original owner who was a Green Beret. He said he wore it on multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan (including the Iraq Invasion). Has been painted desert tan. Has the original CFG pads and chinstrap.

2003 MSA MICH helmet

Factory tan color. Nice example of a solider painted helmet from the early 2000s. Still has the correct original pads and chinstrap.

I think you may have seen this one pwcosol ... this was in Mosul, Iraq a long long time ago. I couldn't find too many ACH/MICH pics. I usually wasn't wearing the damn thing.

Oops ... I meant crayj may have seen the above photo before. I think I sent him the unredacted version a while back. 

 

Anyway, here's another early Iraq (pre-OpsCore/multicam days) photo of me talking with fellow Team Sergeant from another ODA that happens to be wearing his MICH. You helmet collector fans, check out that cool looking night vision/thermal combo! Would make for a great helmet display!

My latest acquisition, unissued ECH. I had the cover and band.

Here is the ACH in my collection. Sadly I misplaced the ballistic nape pad.

 

This one was worn by my dad in Kuwait in 2008 and then again in Afghanistan in 2010.

 

The helmet band is marked with blood type and laundry number. Also funny thing of note is he was promoted to LTC from Major mid Afghanistan deployment, so to save effort from resewing a new rank, he sharpied the Major rank black. I used to have a patrol cap that also featured this but I think I lost it in a hotel in California.804B2A93-D82B-4473-934D-18A775E5BFEE.jpeg.65b44f5d07ff7a083fd4602dae2728aa.jpegA02507AA-16F3-44CC-B856-3090F0009159.jpeg.4286b9378cec223538ff534ed423271e.jpeg617A6AA8-0FEA-446F-948C-DDF2AC8D55C2.jpeg.5bc2be212acd1ee591166c6c5519f533.jpeg
