Nicaraguan Sandinista Army uniform (post revolution time period) from the 1980s. time period. 

The pin on the shirt says FSLN CST. The FSLN (Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional) was the Marxist party in Nicaragua that overthrew Somoza in 1979. 
The CST (Central Sandinista de Trabajadores) was the leading national trade union. . 

I'm not entirely sure if the uniform is from the regular army or from the militia. Not enough information out there on the Nicaraguan Army from the 1980s. Very much a forgotten time in Central American/US hisotry.
