    It's amazing to see a veteran in uniform. My unit (1st I.D.) had a dinner several months ago for a master sergeant who landed on Omaha Beach with the 16th Infantry Regiment, and we bought him an M41 jacket. It was great to see him wearing it, and we got calls from him family, thanking us and telling us that he has been wearing the jacket around everywhere.

    ya its awesome to see him in it the unit got it for him a while back and he actually wore his original jump boots to the event which took him an hour to put on because they where to small so he didnt wear socks and cut off a pice so he could get them on he was told he didnt have to wear them but insisted he had to it was awesome to hang out with him

    Looks like you entered a time machine without telling us about it.

    Well now we know how you have got hold of these 500 untouched and battleworn SS uniforms.
