Nice patch from a rare Special Forces Parachute Club. 0 false 18 pt 18 pt 0 0 false false false Me and My Collection I’d like to share with you a bit about myself, and my collection. First of all, I’ve been collecting U.S. Army Special Forces, and MACV SOG militaria for OVER 40 YEARS. I was born and raised on and around Army bases, during and immediately following the Vietnam War. My stepfather was Special Forces from its earliest days, and throughout SF involvement in Vietnam. He was an SFC. in the 5th Special Forces Group, Co. C (Charlie Company) in Vietnam for 4 tours, and before that, 2 tours in 10th Special Forces Group in Germany, serving in combat in Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and The Congo in his 20+ year career. My collection started when my stepfather married my mother in 1969, and presented me with my first green beret – From then on, I’ve basically scoured the planet looking for original Airborne, USSF and MACV-SOG patches, berets, uniforms, and equipment. Other than what I received from my stepfather (and other Army brats like myself) many of my patches were acquired when I was a youngster during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. I started attending on-post yard sales, gun shows, and militaria shows during this time period. My point is, when I say my pieces are “Original” I mean they were made IN Vietnam, or Southeast Asia DURING, the Vietnam War. Most of my collection has been in my possession for decades. The others were bought from reputable, reliable dealers over the years. What I’m selling is MY collection. I only have a couple patches that I have a double for, so if you see one you need, you better snag it, because I won’t be replenishing my supply with copies currently being reproduced in Asia, like MOST of the regular dealers on Ebay.
