    Painted Iraqi Kevlar Helmet captured during Desert Storm by a US soldier. This was a goodwill pickup. The suspension is very salty and sandy. Enjoy.

    Hehe, just imagine me in BDUs (for Civil Air Patrol) carrying around this and a Czech Tankers helmet and not setting ethier down and looking around very nervously, afraid the Goodwill staff will confinscate my finds because they're military.

    Cool find!!

    I wish I wouldv'e kept more of my bring backs. I gave away so much over the years, and I am left with very little. Some went to fellow collectors like my brother Steve, so I know the items are valued and taken care of. Others I am afraid, will one day end up in a Goodwill or rubbish. But then again, who knows, it might be a guy like you, in the next generation, who finds it and gets all excited because he knows what it is, and what it represents!! Laughing

    Ive never found any helmets at Goodwill, but I have found several nice VN era OG field jackets, some in unissued condition!

    I once found a matching set of original Vietnam tiger stripe camo with the childrens Halloween costumes
