    These items are bring backs from Sgt. Goulet from the invasion of Iraq. How do I know these are from Sgt. Goulet and are from the invasion? Sgt. Goulet was good enough to write his name in some of the items and the date he picked them up. The canteen is named and dated 04-06-2003.2003 Vet bringbacks from Iraq Dsc00317

    This pack is clearly Iraqi, but it was made from a U.S. pack in India.2003 Vet bringbacks from Iraq Dsc00319

    Iraqi gas mask and bag. It is marked, but I do not know its meaning. Sgt. Goulet picked this up the same day he picked up the canteen, 04-06-03.2003 Vet bringbacks from Iraq Dsc00323

    If I got it correct the helmet is also Iraqi made. Sgt. Goulet was also good enough to date when he picked this helmet up. Research showed that March 25 2003 was the 5th day of the invasion of Iraq and major sand storm lasting 3 days stopped the U.S. on its way to Baghdad.2003 Vet bringbacks from Iraq Dsc00330

    So everything dates to the invasion. Sgt. Goulet clearly had an eye towards his part in history. This is the difference between a very specific place and time in history and being associated with a place in time in history. Thank you Sgt. Goulet, I only wish I knew what outfit you were with.2003 Vet bringbacks from Iraq Dsc00331

    Really nice grouping. Name and dates just add to it. Congratulations.
