    Default New Pickups: Vietnam War Uniforms

    Hello:

    Just picked these two uniforms up from two different people. I'm not to familar with collecting Vietnam era stuff but I though these looked good.
    What do you guys think?

    Feels right, looks right, smells right... could it be right?
    Thanks
    Cody

    The second jacket is post-Vietnam. The unit patch is the Intelligence and Security Command, which came into being on January 1st, 1977. Inscom replaced both the Army Security Agency (ASA) and the Army Intelligence Agency (AIA). The other one is possibly the 7th Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment, which did serve in Vietnam.

    Thanks Dusty; just shows how long a jacket can sit before it's used. Made in 1968 but wasn't used until 77 haha.

    I bought some "brand new" at the clothing sales store at Fort Bragg, NC in 1985. They were unused stocks left over from the Vietnam era.

    How long was this kind of uniform used? Late 80's?

    IIRC, we phased them out in '87.
