    Modified Jungle Jacket - SEAL used in the Drug Wars

    Post by nkomo on Sat Sep 15, 2012 5:56 pm

    This is one of the strangest modified jackets I own. This is a 1970 dated modified jungle jacket. Right arm has the pocket of an RDF (Rapid Deployment Forces) jacket sewn to the sleeve. The use of RDF pockets on modified jackets is a known SEAL modification from the 1980's time period.

    Left sleeve has the pocket from an Ecuadorian tiger stripe jacket sewn to the sleeve.

    Jacket has never had any insignia attached. Has "P765" penned on the left chest pocket and on the inside. Sleeve pockets are crudely sewn on by hand, but stitching is quite solid.

    The SEALs were in Ecuador in the 1980's for training, intelligence gathering, and surveillance.
