    This set was worn several



    DCU'S Mvc-1813



    years ago by my brother-in-law in Iraq. He had these but had to turn all his ACU's in. He added all the goodies when he got back to the states.

    NP!

    Well you did a great job! You know, respect, I don't really know how it is on the battlefield, but I saw movies and series, like the hurtlocker, and Generation kill... and I don't really want to be there!

    And yeah great stuff

    Very nice helmet and DCU. Your brother was in the 1st Brigade Combat Team (327th regiment) so I wonder if he saw a six hours of gun-fight between the 101st and Saddam's sons?

    Gee, that method is, or was pretty common. Just another form of "dummy cording" something to prevent it from coming off and getting lost. Most of the time, the "550 cord", or nylon line is used. With the helmets, the inner strings of the cord were removed, just leaving the outer shell which was then looped as you see it here, and usually tied off to a part of the helmet suspension inside.

    Thanks Scott.

    As I said never seen this arrangement before, unfortunately all the lids I pick up are very rarely in field condition,and as a result ,have been messed with...that's why it's cool to see a lid that's original ...like yours..thanks Mate Wink
