60s Vintage Identified 'Pelliccioni' OG-107 M65 Field Jacket - Medium

A magnificent piece of history with real provenance.

Below is a short message he sent us with some information about his career and time in-country (shared with permission):

"Initially I was assigned to the 1st Signal Brigade up North in Phu Bai as part of the 596th Signal Company. Within a short time, I was selected as our battalion "chaser." A chaser is one who escorts either on a pre or post-trial conviction of a US criminal to a brig or jail. It was a great job. I extended my time to go south and be a part of the 82nd Airborne where I finished up my tour involuntarily. President Nixon started a program called Vietnamization, basically giving our guns to the locals and letting them go after the enemy. He first pulled out the 9th Infantry and secondly, the 82nd Airborne. I did not know this at the time but my Mother wrote to Nixon after she learned I extended to try to get me out...she always took credit for that although I am sure that did not play a part in his decision. I took my R&R in Australia and still hear from the family I spent a day with. What stands out is that this family took many soldiers out for a day but she always remembered me as I was the youngest. I went to Vietnam 3 months after my 19th birthday. 05 Charlie was my MOS although it did not matter once you were over there."
