    I have been holding off posting this DCU for a bit. I was hoping I could possibly figure out who the original owner was, but the name tape has been removed and that makes the research quite difficult.


    The Jacket is an EARLY commercial 3-Color DCU that was available for purchase during Desert Storm through companies like Brigade Quartermaster, US Cav, etc. This piece has the early take-up tabs on the side that have been tailored by sewing them down. Has NBC News Desert Storm tape on the chest, along with the NBC logo. Has a desert tan US flag and DESERT STORM above that. Jacket is heavily used, is faded, and has dirt/grease/grime ring in the neck collar area.

    I was contacted by the seller offering me a DCU cap from the same guy. When the cap arrived, I was beyond surprised. The cap looks like it is a later manufactured piece and I believe the cap may very well be from when he covered Operation Iraqi Freedom.

    N'kay... I left my thoughts on this one on the back burner for a bit, because I was reeling from thinking about it. I met Arthur Kent, way back when I was a kid-- and I think I annoyed him.

    But "Richard."

    What do you reckon it could be Richard Engel?

    Odds are stacked, dude-- because I don't think that the support staff get to have names.

    (Yep, this is probably why I annoyed Kent).
