For The Love of Vintage Militaria


This just does it for me.  I love when I happen upon vintagicity such as this....


A WWII Airforce dress uniform that includes the original Ike jacket, (with patches, ribbons, and stripes) pants, and shirt.  Along with the dress uniform was a standard issue uniform of the same less the patches and stripes.  In the inner pocket of the jacket I found this patch....


The young man issued this uniform belonged to the 15th Airforce established November 1, 1943.  Vintagicity like this is just hard to let go of, however, I can't keep it all so I'm hoping a militaria collector may find this of interest.
