    Default Winter Camoflauge Parka

    This was given to me several years ago by the Vet who brought it back with him, said he wanted it to have a good home. Reversable, brownish on other side. Buttons on white side seem to be a sort of hard paper. I've sure enjoyed and appreciated this nice gift.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Don't know exactly where he did serve, just know I was greatly appreciative when he gave it to me. I do remember him saying that whatever his position was he had access to about whatever he wanted. Thanks for the replies.
