Very cool hat.  My Dad was in the 42 TEWs (Tactical Electronic Warfare) stationed at Korat Thailand and flew 120 missions over Vietnam.  I used to play with all the gear he brought back and I had one of these and a camo one.  I have photos of him wearing all the "Thailand Cowboy" gear that I will have to post.

Re: U.S./N.V.A./V.C/Chi-Com items

I didn't expect to see such a great VN thread on the DAK Forum! Fantastic stuff guys. Those tour jackets are really works of art and really hard to find. Great examples, all of them and the berets and cowboys too. I really like that tiger stripe boonie in the first shot with the SKS. Can you shoot some closeups of it inside and out? Vents, any marks. Nice pattern. What would you call that pattern ie Johnson etc? I happen to have some shots of some of my stuff on the computer so I will add to this really interesting display. The Navy stencil jacket is great too. Thanks for posting! Got me excited about my Nam stuff again. As you can see, I have a soft spot for tiger camo. One of mine is a helicopter gunner TS coverall. THe tag is from Okinawa and says Okinawa Maids with a couple of girls on the neck tag. Keep em coming.

Re: U.S./N.V.A./V.C/Chi-Com items

In the above, there are a couple of advisor gold sets, 4th pic #1 and 2. The next one in that line I believe is a seal team used TS. Has a map pocket in the inside left chest with black buttons. Pants and shirt. Then the Okinawa bought TS helicopter pilot or gunner TS coveralls.  The parachute camo cowboy has two propellers in the vents both sides. I always thought Riverine or Navy patrol boats. One of my favorite cowboys. Have an incountry boonie camo, ERDL non-ripstop with Snoopy on the top and another Vietnam War Hero band, I think were Hmong made. Last shot is full set of  John Wayne Dense ? with incountry made name tag and nice gold 25th Inf. airborne Sgt. All machined on and incountry made patches.
