Long Range Recon Patrol Vietnam with ERDL Camoflauge
« on: September 19, 2018, 08:06:00 AM »
Here is another recent exhibit that is in the hallway of the Command Group at the US Army Sergeant's Major Academy. A Long Range Recon Patrol member with the ERDL pattern jungle fatigues. The web gear in M1956 canvas pattern and all items in the exhibit are from my personal collection. The compass that is being carried by the recon trooper actually belonged to Isaac "Ike" Camacho. He was a Special Forces guy who was captured by the Vietnamese and he escaped. He was a US postal carrier in El Paso for years and through a Special Forces Chaplain I was given this compass.

There are some items in the exhibit that are unique and not everyone knew of their use. The Chie Hoi program propaganda leaflets and plastic bags that held 20 round M-16 magazines, some had never heard of, as well as the AN/PRT 4 radio transmitter and AN/PRR 9 helmet receiver..

We will keep this exhibit up for a few months as we prepare to change out our WW1 exhibit after the Centennial in November 2018.

Hope you enjoy this small exhibit..
