    This is certainly a rare item found in a band. The octopus ( squid) in the helmet band of Richard Schlagel ( C 1/5 USMC ) in Hue Feb. 1968. The squid was a Christmas gift from his brother, a sailor hence the squid. He also has the common pack of smokes and bug juice but the squid sets him apart. Iconic photos of an epic battle with many terrible days,this one included. Joe
