    I have had this Flak jacket for a while now I got it for $20.00 and I got it due to the battle damage to it. It is a nice USMC flak jacket and shows nice battle damage from Vietnam. Let me know what you think.

    could have been used during the BATTLE of HUE CITY 1968

    it would be nice if it came directly from a USMC vet with the history of where this happened or had a tag on it with some info

    $20 was well worth the price cheers

    Yes it would be nice if it did so I could know the history of it but sadly I got it from some guy at the flea market and yes I sure did get it for a nice price
