These 2 jackets and accessories are part of a larger group to a career officer who graduated from West Point served 2 tours in Vietnam and trained paratroopers in several other countries including Brazil. I will lower the price for anyone who will keep the larger group together. So see my other auctions for insignia, medals and patches from this same veteran spanning a 30 year career from the 50s to the 80s. I have also posted a picture of the entire larger group.This group has the green jacket with pants, shirt, tie and Vietnam garment bag. Also included are the dress blue jacket with pants and garment bag. He was on 2 combat missions with the Vietnamese paratroopers where they jumped from a plane. He put 2 stars on his jump wings for those missions.
The 2 jackets have almost identical ribbons and insignia but the dress blue jacket has a numbered French para badge as well as Vietnamese and Brazilian para wings. He was awarded 2 Legion of Merits, 2 Bronze Stars 1 with a V, 5 Air Medals, Army Commendation and more. His first tour in Vietnam was as an Airborne advisor. The second tour was with the 101st where he served as S-2 and worked with the Long Range Recon teams. These are amazing and very seldom seen set uniforms to the same man.Nothing is named but they were obtained directly from the vet and are guaranteed to be original as found from the vet. Please review my other auctions as I list them. There will be more than 5 lots. E, they are not perfect items. I do however try my best to research each an every item I find and give the best description listing possible. I treat you the customer the same way I would want and expect to be treated. Please, try to do the same in return.
