Jeans were part of a sailors work uniform in those days, so they were easy to get and screamed NAVY!

Jeans can be hot and they are heavy when full of water but everyone as a really comfy pair of jeans and jeans were used by cowboys and workmen before they were fashionable. 60's and 70's jeans are work pants with plenty of room, not the designer jeans we have today. Jeans offer good protection when waking in heavy jungle/woods etc, if it's good enough for cattle rustling, it's good enough for combat.

About the flip flops, everyone as seen SF pictures from Assghanistan. Some SF troops look like hippies with weapons Beard, baseball cap, large glasses, sports team shirt....

that's a good point 5kull. I hadn't considered the cultural significance of blue jeans.

alright alright. Given our discussion, I think I might go with blue jeans.

Forgive the crappy photos. Hopefully you guys get the idea.

did the 101st wear tiger camo in veitnam? Did pretty much all special forces wear it?

edit: I've googled it a bit but wanted to get some idea from you guys.

editx2: k, I think I found the answer and that is yes. I wanted to know if I could sew on this patch to my tiger camo shirt


editx3: do you wear the same patch on both arms?, or vary it up?

Attention la 101ème au Vietnam n'était pas comme la 101ème de la seconde guerre mondiale, elle n'était pas une division d'élite mais une division d'infantrie aéroportée qui attaquaient les Vietcongs directement dans leurs zones d'influences. Il ne faut pas les mélanger avec les MACV-SOG qui incorporent les meilleurs éléments de toutes les divisions (air, mer, terre).

Par défaut les membres de la 101ème au Vietnam portait l'uniforme OD normal, mais avec un insigne de couleurs. La division a refusée de porter l'insigne subduded pour honorer leurs traditions issues de la deuxième guerre. Mais il est possible que certaines unités dans la 101ème aient portées du Tiger Stripes, mais cela serait une exception.

Un seul insigne et il est placée sur la manche gauche, centré à un demi pouce sous la couture de l'épaule. La manche droite est libre, à moins d'être membre d'un régiment qui s'est distinguée au combat et ayant reçu l'honneur d'avoir un insigne de régiment.

Yes the subdued patches were issued to the division, but the 101st and others refused until the end of the war to wore them.
