A second pattern, concealed button U.S. Army jungle jacket worn by a Green Beret Staff Sergeant in the Special Forces. The jacket has subdued name tag ("Carlson")and "U.S. Army" tape, with color cloth paratrooper wings and Combat Infantry Badge. The sleeves have color Staff Sergeant chevrons while the left shoulder displays color, cut edge insignia for active service in the Special Forces was well as for Ranger qualification. The interior of the jacket shows the distinctive "puckering" of the jacket material underneath the sleeve, chest and shoulder insignia, an indication of the jacket having been laundered in rice starch after the insignia was already on the jacket. The jacket shows honest use but remains in very good used condition.
