    Figured I'd start dumping all my post-WW2 Army uniforms here, along with other odds and ends.
    Probably won't post reference pics unless they are pertinent to a specific piece, or unless anybody would like me to.
    There won't be any particular rhyme or reason to the order, just as I go through my photo folder and acquire more.



    First is a 1st pattern sateen utility shirt, with color 82nd Airborne insignia and SPC ranks, missing the tapes and jump badge.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm34


    Another well worn utility, to a Pvt. Weller in the 1st Cav., US Army Japan.
    There's evidence of other rank having been sewn on, demoted or a reissued shirt?
    I had some 1st Cav in Japan pics but seem to have lost them, dangit.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm35


    A couple of matching 2nd Armored Cavalry Division shirts named to Spc. Sylvia, of which there were originally three, I missed the third and sold the one with the unattached ranks to a friend.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm36
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm37


    Spc. Bartlett, US Army Europe.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm38


    A neat modified one, with epaulets and arm pen pockets which I understand to be a common mod for guys stationed in Korea.
    It's a small size and heavily tailored in, named to a Japanese-American with a Hangul version beneath.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm39


    A pair of 2003 dated CCU trousers made by American Power Source, in a massive XX Large-Long size.
    They are pretty well worn with a woodland fabric repair to a belt loop on the inside.

    A gun show find, a '91 dated DCU coat badged to a Major in the Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command with Airborne Cavalry and EIB badges.
    There was a matching woodland top but the seller wanted a bit much for both so I only got the DCU top.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm44


    A 1970 dated 3rd pattern jungle jacket, named to Daugherty in the 3rd ACR.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm45


    A curious DBDU coat dated 1990, made by American Apparel, patched to a "Christman" who was Ranger tabbed, 3rd Armored Division, EIB, Senior Jump,
    and the only DBDU I've ever seen with a Diver badge.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm51


    A 2009 dated UCP A2CU aircrew coat patched to a WO3, Air Traffic Service Command, 1st AD, Air Assault, Combat Action, Army Aviation, and oddly again, an Army Salvage Diver badge.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm52


    A UCP ACU coat I was given and sold years ago, had almost all the velcro cut off, was a Medium-Short but I forget the date and maker.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm53


    Another one that had a couple of Ranger tabs in the pocket, along with shooting earplugs and some nicotine lozenges.
    I have/had other coats and trousers that were unremarkable by having no insignia or unique features which I either didn't photograph
    or figured they weren't worth posting.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm54


    UCP ACU, SFC, Combat Medical Badge.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm55

    My friend's spare Coat, All Weather, Man's, dated 2009.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm65


    Also from my friend, a couple of Type II Massif combat shirts in Multicam, dated 2014.
    He also gave me a stack of Multicam and Scorpion ACU coats with no insignia, but I haven't photo'd any of them.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm66


    An OG M65 and RDF coat given by another friend's dad, who was an M60 gunner in the late 70's/early 80's right around the same time my dad was in the Air Force.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm68
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm69


    Also from my former Army friend, his spare, unworn pair of 2014 dated Readyone Ind. "Army Combat Pant", with the improved belt loops, pockets,
    and slots for Crye kneepads.

    This was a single DCU top I pulled from a rack of probably at least 30 different DCU and BDU sets all named to this same guy way back around 2016.
    There was some variation to the unit insignia and qual badges but I didn't have the money then to grab any more.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm74


    A '99 dated grouping gifted to me for Christmas, no names or visible patch ghosts to really be able to tell more about it.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm75


    Few years back a seller on ebay somehow found an entire unopened cardboard box of unused Urban Tracks helmet covers and sold them at a reasonable enough price,
    managed to grab one though I still don't have an ACH or MICH to properly display it on yet. No markings at all.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm77


    Another gift, an otherwise unimpressive '99 ripstop hot weather BDU coat that had its missing California National Guard patch in the pocket.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm78


    My friend's spare JLIST set, dated 2008. Interesting that 3 Color Desert was (is?) still in use with NBC gear as late as 2019 when he gave it to me.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm79


    A 1973 L-2B Light Zone flight jacket, custom decorated by the 1st Cavalry, 15th Medical Battalion, Vietnam UH-1 crew chief veteran MSgt. Marco Antonio Estrella Endara,
    who sadly passed away in 2016.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm80


    Another L-2B, made by Alpha in '79. Named to Cecil, with a metallic sage lining rather than the bright orange like on the 1973 example.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm82


    The first BDU I ever got, patched for the 13th Sustainment Command and strangely with 2003 dated white silk tags which sadly washed away.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm84


    An '85 top, 40th Mechanized Infantry.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm85

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_arm86


    A couple of (M1947?) 13 star button shirts that belonged to my step-grandpa, who served in the late 40's as an engineer.
    One appears to have had the pockets replaced, there's no legible markings left on them.

    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_ar118


    2008 UCP M65 coat. From what I've read these were only made by Golden Mfg., with three awarded contracts in 2004, 06, and 08.
    OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... Us_ar120


    A 2009 American Apparel UCP-D coat. Came with a 101st patch and U.S. Army tape in Multicam colors in the pocket, but I don't think
    they were original to the coat.

    I believe if i remember rightly the US trialed UCP-D and Multicam at the same time in Afghanistan. There are Multicam uniforms with 09c contract tags from that time. So, maybe the tags are from that time. Do they look similarly worn to the uniform

    @jimmyduncan23: Hard to say, I suppose they could have been original to it, I tried searching once for
    pics of Multicam insignia being worn with UCP-D coats but at the time I didn't find any, though I could always search again.
    There is a 101st sized wear spot on the right sleeve velcro but I don't see any fading for the shape,
    One interesting thing to note is that the back of the Army tape is foliage green, I don't know if that is a common
    production detail but it could suggest that it's an earlier made Multicam tape from that trial period.

    Early US Army multicam nametapes used ginger thread and later switched to current black thread.
    USAF Multicam/ OCP nametapes currently use ginger thread.

    Nice collection. I should do the same with mine, if only for a record for myself. My UCP-D came with a UCP-D 'US Army' nametape - the only one I know of anywhere.

    Thank you for the info ripcord, I'll save those patches for another coat then.
    And filupe, I would love to see your collection, if and when you can find the time to post it all  OGs, BDUs, DBDUs, DCUs, ACUs... 1f604
    Here's another recent get; a 2005 dated BAE Systems ACH, with matching dated Specialty Defense chinstrap assembly, 2007-2009 dated pad assembly, and UCP cover that I did not remove to check the date.
    Note the "Boehning" named cat eye band and the Revision Desert Locust APEL goggles are not original to this helmet, I added them to the helmet to dress it up a bit.
    Most interestingly, it has a 10/24/2011 dated GEN II HEADS (Headborne Energy Analysis and Diagnostic System) TBI sensor still glued to the interior crown of the helmet, underneath the large circular pad.

    From what I could read in online articles, the HEADS sensor is designed to measure shock and pressure waves dealt to the helmet to detect possible TBI's to the individual soldier that would otherwise go unnoticed.
    The first generation was allegedly much more bulky, externally mounted with a visible light that would activate when in range of a home port, while this Gen II appears to have been replaced by a third gen.
    It has a low power consumption to allow it to collect data for long periods of time without recharging, and has a micro-USB port to plug it into a computer with the applicable program needed to decipher the recordings from the sensor.
    There were allegedly issues with them getting false readings, particularly for example, the soldier bumping objects while wearing the helmet, or the helmet getting dropped.
