ALICE Gear was NOT used in VIETNAM

Hey Bro,
Sorry to have to tell you this but ALICE gear is all POST Vietnam. He probably had nylon gear called the M1967 since it was developed in 1967. ALICE GEAR was fielded in early 1973-74 well after all fighting units had been withdrawn. there is a few photos of USMC at the Embassy in 1975 and a few of them have the ALICE but only since they were Fleet Marines. But again no piece of ALICE ever made it to Vietnam during the actual fighting phase of the war!
