    sorry for the bad quality of the close ups of the liner and company stamp, will post more tomorrow. It is a gentex D-132A helmet, which says on the stamp and liner.

    Could be Bravo company and tank 31 or thirty first tank Bn. , brigade or regiment. There was a 31st tank batallion as part of the 7th US Armored Division in WWII, but I believe that was disbanded after the war. Could be something else . Anyway, your helmet is legit, so no worries there at all. I wore one of these for a while in my reserve unit as a tank crewman on M60's after my active service. I still have photos of myself wearing one standing next to my tank.

    1990's era they have been made since right after vietnam, up till today. the materials and configuration are the same as one i wore during storm (man that little spot at the back of my head just started itching)

    as for markings.. possibly it is bravo company 31st engineers battalion.

    If you like it, it's worth the money you paid for it.
