    Great find. 3rd pattern U.S. ARMY Vietnam war jungle fatigue jacket dated 1968. Has "ghost" patch of E-4 Specialist rank, with "in country"made SGT stripes and shoulder patch, black cotton thread emembroidery on to olive drab green cotton. Possibly scraps from an old Army shirt. (Not a jungle shirt, but the standard sateen cotton shirt) Nice find, as finding original period Vietnam jungle fatigue jackets with sleeve rank is hard to find, as the sleeve rank was short lived, and soon went to collar rank.....glad to have this in my collection
