    NBC News War Correspondent Jacket and Cap

    I have been holding off posting this DCU for a bit. I was hoping I could possibly figure out who the original owner was, but the name tape has been removed and that makes the research quite difficult.

    The Jacket is an EARLY commercial 3-Color DCU that was available for purchase during Desert Storm through companies like Brigade Quartermaster, US Cav, etc. This piece has the early take-up tabs on the side that have been tailored by sewing them down. Has NBC News Desert Storm tape on the chest, along with the NBC logo. Has a desert tan US flag and DESERT STORM above that. Jacket is heavily used, is faded, and has dirt/grease/grime ring in the neck collar area.

    I was contacted by the seller offering me a DCU cap from the same guy. When the cap arrived, I was beyond surprised. The cap looks like it is a later manufactured piece and I believe the cap may very well be from when he covered Operation Iraqi Freedom.

    Always looking for Central American militaria 1965 to 1991. Especially items relating to Coronel Velasquez El Salvador Armed Forces
