    Picked this up over the summer and found the pictures stashed in a file on my camera. I haven't done any research on this yet. There's actually a bit more stuff than I have pictured. I'll have to dig it back out and update this. I don't know what the unit crests are anymore either.

    Sgt. Levering was with the 5th Army when he got out. He had served a year in Vietnam with the 1st Inf. Div.

    His duffle bag

    His utilities. All are early 3rd pattern. Most of the 1st Div patches are WW2 era as are the 5th Army patches. 1 of the name tapes is in-country made.
