I have a bunch of socks and 2 more pairs of boots. If I had to put it on tomorrow, I would be in the same boat, I don't have any underwear!

The only ones I know of are all online now. I haven't been in a surplus store since I was a kid.



Mostly was www.mooremilitaria.com and www.ebay.com and www.omahas.com

Thumbs down

I sent Lots of stuff home from RVN and then after I got home added to the pile.
Here are some photos of the Viet Nam display I set up at gun shows and Vets conventions. I do both US and VC/NVA displays.
Well I guess not as I can't find the photos on this new computer, guess I've still got some transferring to do!

Boy, that's a lot more stuff than I had in Viet Nam; it's in a lot better shape too. Something's wrong with those jungle boots, though, I seem to remember that mine were almost white.

Great collection. My boots have survived but not in that condition, love the "trip wire" you have. I never saved any of that but still have some implements to attach the wires to. Was not a nam vet though. USMC 83-89 combat engineer.

Cool

Here are my VN weapons.
Can't find all the photos of my VN War displays at conventions and gun shows.
The first photo is of my living room wall, VC flag and home made grenade.
I have trophy papers for all but one (1) of the weapons in the second photo. The AK was brought back w/o papers and registered in the 68 amnesty.
The first M14 from the right in the 3rd photo is a semi auto M1A.

Thumbs up

I've got a bunch of the Vn money, both coins and paper - to include some NVA. I also sent home one of everything in the MPC from nickels to a $5 bill.
Couldn't see any sense in sending anything larger - to much of a wast of $$!
