Thank you for once again gracing this thread with your knowledge Skeletor. I'm going to give some thought as to whether I'll wear the patches. If I do it'll be the one Shakal recommended. So long as I get my jungle boots tomorrow I should be ok in terms of an authentic look. Can't wait to play!!!

Why do you need to wear a patch? As well, you should consider how common it really was to see SF wearing their SSI on field uniforms for the time period you want to do.
I don't need to, but I like the idea. However I enjoy staying authentic and from what I notice most SF guys in Vietnam had no patches.

Anything more "special" then Airborne didnt usually wear patches. Usually LRRPs, SOG, Green Beret and even SEALs wore completly sterile fatigues. No unit patches, no name tags, sometimes not even dog tags, no ID of any kind. Not even the (although it was obvious) US Army name tape. Made it hard for the enemy to figure out who they were and where they were operating out of.

Will sure do

[quote=-Skeletor-;1745124]Well, the Marines really don't have any insignia too wear. And the insignia they do have(pin on rank and qual badges*) seems to only be worn in garrison. Not sure how common it was to have the EGA stamp on the shirt pocket though, seems pretty mixed(of having/not having) in the photos I've seen. I think they only started wearing USMC tapes and name tapes on their uniforms in the '90s.

Thanks for the Info ! I never saw any EGA on marine shirt in VN.

I'm still piecing my loadout together are there any other sites I should know about to find the small additions I'm missing?
Hollywood and Bravo-One Six have given me a 2. Mostly missing a flack vest and .45 holster.
