    Default Garage Sale Find!

    I got these uniforms from a neighbor who had a garage sale. He was a captain in the 16th infantry regiment and was in the first division in vietnam. I got them as a pair for $30.

    Very nice! Soak up all of the Vietnam stuff while you can. All it takes is one Vietnam War-era "Band of Brothers" and suddenly you won't be able to find it anymore, especially at the prices that you can get it nowadays.

    Vietnam stuff is not selling for the prices WWII is right now but I think maybe a little more than what you spent. As ObKreiger said, hold onto it and when a good documentary or something comes out about the war it will spike the prices.
