    no, he was in the military before that. he was born in 1942 and went in in the early 60s and he has 3 uniforms (the other two for two of my cousins) so i would believe he got another one issued to him each year maybe?

    That time frame was during Vietnam. In the 50's we sent advisors. We tripled troops in the early 60's and in 1975 Saigon fell.
