Vietnam 1st Pattern Special Forces Jungle Jacket

I acquired this jacket in the 1990's. It has seen good use. The left pocket flap was replaced. When the collar split down the crease, a tailer cleverly flipped it over and resewed it back. The silk-woven LLDB pocket hanger is stitched to a fibrous material. The theater-made chevrons were hand embroidered over strips of Vietnamese news paper on sateen cloth. A prior combat tour with 25th Infantry Division (Korea?). I've never been able to ID this jacket.

Personal Collection - not for sale.
