    They've made a lot of modifications to the original, like M16A2 that came out in the 80's

    I was never in the military, but I really like the old style bell bottom dungarees. I see that there are some surplus stores that still sell them (and they're cheap). I might actually buy a pair.

    My current winter coat is an official issue peacoat I bought from an Army-Navy store.

    My first assignment after boot camp as an E-2, USCGC Reliance. 210ft Cutter. In the far north Atlantic. 8 hours on duty, 8 hours off duty. 3 hours would be spent breaking up ice on the ship, then the next 5 hours you were a gopher on the Bridge.

    LOL! We only had film camera back then, so I had to scan these. I had a real expensive Vivitar camera at that time that I picked up at PX.

    Cool pics guys! My dad's ex Navy and served on the Midway and fueled planes (purple shirts, I think). Wish I could share some of his photos, but it was lost in a house fire about 10 yrs ago.

    Sorry to hear about the house fire.

    Of course you would know that I was a 49ers fan when I was stationed in Alameda

    I still have my peacoat issued to me in boot camp. Though if I try to put it on I start singing fat man in a little coat like Chris Farley.
