BEAST Posted October 25, 2019 Share #1 Posted October 25, 2019 Many years ago (1980s), one of the guys I used to reenact with sold this pack to a local militaria shop. Fortunately I knew the shop owner and was able to buy this and a couple of other items. The vet who sold it had served in Vietnam with the 101st Abn. I asked him about it and he said that it came out of a NVA cache.The vet thought that, at the time, they were fighting against the 821st NVA Regiment and that the pack was captured while fighting in the A Shau Valley. The pack is in excellent condition and seems to have more compartments than I would expect with a "normal" pack. Maybe this was also for carrying a radio or other specialized gear? Any thoughts would be appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
