Pictured are some of the helmets I was able to obtain from U.S. Army and Marine veterans throughout the years. The pith helmet was the standard piece of headgear worn by the NVA and to a lesser extent, the North Vietnamese Navy. Navy helmets are very difficult to find. The navy used the standard army green helmet and painted it white. The navy also had their own insignia which differed from the army. A few of the helmets have the soldiers name written in pen, wheras in one of them the soldier took a pin and poked holes to spell out his name, as you will see in the last photo.
