    Hello,
    Once again I'm not in the military but my dad was. So today i was going through my dads stuff and I find an ammunition box, when i open it up I find besides baby pictures of me (and my scar) are some of his stuff from the military. (I blocked out the Social security numbers on his cards) I believe there is some of that in storage in the house too so tell me if you want ,e to find it.

    Robert you beat me to it. Hated those things. One benefit of SF was that no one who really mattered (to us) cared about that stuff especially in a war zone. Every once in a while some REMF would see us and decide to "straighten" us out on proper military attire.
    One Maj. from the Quartermaster corp really got into it. We picked him up and threw him into the Saigon river.

    As soon as you either stood up or squatted the dang things would shift, they were worse than useless except for Guard Mount when we all walked around with stiff legged strides until after inspection at which point off they came!
