Original 101st Airborne Vietnam Jungle Jump Jacket (501pir) Large Long Helmet:
This amazing jacket was bought fron Bill Rentz in 2008
Original Description from Mr Rentz it´s as follows...
I purchased this uniform in 1973 when I was doing research on my book on World War II Airborne uniforms. I bought it because of the fact that you could see the influence of the WW2 style on these jungle jackets. I'm not that familiar with Vietnam era uniforms so I will only relate what I was told and if I'm incorrect please let me know. I was told that the insignia is theater made. I bought it because the 501st Parachute InfantryRegiment patch is identical to the World War 2 patch. The 101st patch is done on velvet. All of the insignia is original to the uniform and there are no "shadows" or stiching marks. I guarantee this item to be 100% as stated and has not been meesed with. It is a large size marked LARGE-LONG. According to the DSA date this jacket was made in 1969. You won't find a nicer Vietnam Airborne jacket anywhere.
