    Very nice Rene. But probably pre-Vietnam I would think as the OG-107 Utility Fatigue Shirt with cotton sateen and plastic dish type buttons was introduced in 1952 and replaced these earlier HBT fatigues. Korean war would be closer.

    My understanding is that the "US Army" gold on black tape dates from 1953 (becoming black on OG in 1966) and the white name tape over pocket was introduced after the Korean war but in the 1950's.

    A photo of General Westmoreland in 1965 wearing the 1952 pattern Utility Fatigue Shirt in olive green carded cotton sateen. Also featuring those white name tapes & gold US Army title.

    Corporal Wagner? ... Ride Of The Valkyries? This would excite Lt. Col. Kilgore!

    Is that an early pic of General Schwarzkopf in the center ? "Baby face" he was. Wish I could see his rank at the time.
    Cool pic Anderson

    Neat photo! Don't forget "Storming Norman" in the middle. Oops. Sorry, didn't realize he had already been acknowledged in the photo.
