I have had this group for a few years put away, I never put it on the site. This is one of the best captured, documented groups i have found too date. All items are pictured with the vet holding them and may pictures of him with the RT teams on patrol. Complete letter signed and dated by the veteran.
I will try to describe the items that are included in the group
It is stated that in May 1971 the team engaged several North Vietnamese landing zone watchers and he captured one of the ruck sacks. Consisting of identification card, map, canteen, hammock, cold weather vest, NVA uniform pants and a pair of ho chi minh sandals photographs of the veteran holding each item will accompany the document.
Look close at all the items, these by some are considered not war time, mainly the sandals, I have several sets acquired through Jason Hardy that were being backs by special forces veterans that are exactly like these and most collectors shun the cutting on the sole. The fact is they are original and right as rain
The KIA NVA also carried a SKS that was new, it was also stated the NVA was a very old man to be still serving in the war.
