    This is a set that was combat worn by a soldier in the 82nd Ariborne in OEF or OIF. After our operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, regular soldiers (non-SF) began to modify their DCU's. As you can see from the stitching, this set was probably modified by the soldier himself in-country. If you look at the uniform for a moment, you can see that it truly has been through Hell. I have the pants that came with this jacket and they are named and also have blood type written on the pant legs. This uniform holds a special place of honor in my house.
