In the months ahead, we are planning to build more interactive youth exhibits.  To compliment our tent and foxhole exhibit, we would like to have Vietnam/Persian Gulf/Afghanistan gear for kids to try on.  

We are looking for the gear to allow kids to try on what a soldier would wear.  

Things like:

Flak jackets

Interceptor Body Armor (IBA)

M1 helmet and liner

Field pack

Pistol belt

Advanced combat helmet

Tactical vests

Small boots (summer or winter)

Boonie caps

Individual First Aid Kit (IFAK)

Elbow pads

Night vision glasses


Ammo pouches

And anything else we missed. 

If you can help, call Jim at the museum.
