    I recently acquired the uniform from Col.Jim Noll (retired) and some other items.
    Jim was drafted in June,1968, went to OCS and then to the 101st Airborne.
    He was sent to Vietnam where his unit spent 3-1/2 months in the battle for Firebase
    Ripcord. Jim was a platoon leader (First Lt.) and was wounded twice while in Vietnam.
    He was awarded his Purple Hearts, Silver Star and Bronze Star.
    He joined the Army Reserves after discharge in 1971. Over two decades he became the
    Commander of the 13th Psyops Battalion and was the highest ranking Minnesotan to serve in the
    Persian Gulf War.
    He retired in June 1999 as a Colonel.

    Jim is mentioned several times in the book RIPCORD SCREAMING EAGLES UNDER SIEGE, VIETNAM 1970.

    Arch and Clete,
    Thanks guys. I don't collect US Uniforms but couldn't pass this one up. I've known Col. Noll
    for quite a few years and we always have some good discussions when he comes around to the
    military show.
