Here is my first attempt at a Desert Shield/Storm impression. I would like some input from the guys who were there and see what they think.
At the time this is just a generic impression. When I have time I will finish it off as a Pvt. from the 1st Infantry Division.
6 color Shirt
6 color Trousers
Black web trouser belt
K-Pot with 6 color Cover and SDW goggles
6 color Boonie Cap (on pack)
PASGT vest with 6 color cover
2 M-16 ammo pouches
2 1qt. Canteens in cases
2qt. canteen in case
Jungle 1st Aid Kit in case (on pack)
1st aid pouch (on suspenders)
Leather pocket knife case (on suspenders)
Gasmask and bag (tied to pistol belt)
Flashlight (on pack)
Paracord (on pack)
Rain Poncho (on pack)
All of the above items are dated pre 1989 except for the 2qt canteen which is 1993 (my bro has my 1987 one)
Note: at this time the uniform is not for reenacting, it is only for display.
By the end of the summer I hope to have all the stuff for my ALICE ruck, I still need the shovle with case, 6 color cover for the ruck, sleeping bag and pup tent.
BIG thanks to 1stDivVet, the long talks with him imspired me to start putting this set-up together.
Fins, thanks for all the help, tips, stories and pics.
