Re: Vietnam war 9th Infantry Division reenactment from Italy

Your posts are very interesting, I am still amazed at the details of your efforts. There are a couple of things that I will comment on. The M-16 on the mannequin in your display is obviously newer than VN era, or at least the folding stock, short front handguard and long flash suppressor are not th...

Re: Vietnam war 9th Infantry Division reenactment from Italy

Giovanni, I had no idea at the time that the flack jacket my RTO is wearing in the photo was special. True...I don't remember anybody else having one like it either. I sure didn't. He, like me, officially belonged to the 2/4th artillery and we both were given minimal equipment by Delta Battery of t...

Re: Vietnam war 9th Infantry Division reenactment from Italy

The sweat band thing may have started out as more than one thing as Jerry said with the medic slings. I know that there was one issue item meant for a sweat band that I got issued to me from the infantry supply at least once after I was told by someone that was where to go to get one. However.... d...

Re: Vietnam war 9th Infantry Division reenactment from Italy

In later 69 and into 70 Alpha and Bravo had pocket patches. It was something done in Alpha at a suggestion of one of the platoon leaders and the CO liked the idea and it happened. In Bravo I understand that the colors were different for each platoon with their Bravo Bears. Alpha even had a pin made...

Re: Vietnam war 9th Infantry Division reenactment from Italy

That's are exactly the kind of comments we were looking for, thank you so much! -There were no colored patches or rank on the uniforms. The colored patches you can see in the pics are used to portray two chopper pilots from D 3/5 Cavalry, we feel ok about using coloured badges in this case due their...
