US 3rd model uniform top that is badged on the left chest with a US ARMY tape and Basic US Airborne Wings. The right sleeve has a 1st pattern Special Forces shoulder sleeve insignia (SSI) that is correct for the period, the right chest has a name tape that reads: PARKER that is surmounted by Vietnamese Basic Airborne Wings. The piece is labeled: X-SMALL – REGULAR, Chest Up To 32 inches, Height 67 to 71 inches and is 1969 dated. The garment does have a red paint stain on the left sleeve that can be seen in the pictures.
I purchased the uniform from the veteran Lamar Parker who served in Vietnam in 1971 with Military Assistance Command Vietnam Studies and Observations Group (MAC V SOG), Task Force 1 Advisory Element (TF1AE (CCN)), Recon Company, RT Crusader. The garment will come with a reprinted picture of the veteran during his tour and a Letter of Authenticity from www.specialforceshistory.com as artifact number APU-191.
