    Well that certainly is the best buy of the month.
    Looks like a good airborne jump jacket.
    Does it have a QM tag in the lower pocket?

    Thanks guys! Steve,it does not have a tag.John,thanks for the offer. I posted a USN PT jumper on another forum. I had 2 PM's about wanting to sell it. I was offered $75 for it. I did not have the heart to tell the guy I spend $50 more than his offer on beer each week. Besides,I looked through my 30/33/35 gallon size storage bins to find the jacket. It was in the 23rd bin I looked in.I spent a few hours looking. No,I do not know where the pants are.They are somewhere in my house. If I find them I'll post them. Rich A. in Pa.

    Hi Rich,
    A very nice find there Sir, and certainly one worth hanging on to, my advice is never sell anything like this unless you really have to, there not getting any cheaper or easier to find, and always handy thing to have in "the rainy day fund"
