Vietnam “Point Man” – LIMITED EDITION

During the Vietnam War, the Point Man was the first man in a patrol, wearing the distinctive steel M1 helmet. His Mitchell helmet cover, blending green and brown tones, aimed to camouflage him in the dense jungle. This equipment, simple yet functional, embodied the reality of the Vietnam conflict, with the helmet symbolizing both physical protection and adaptation to the hostile environment. Thus, the Point Man was not only a crucial player in the field but also a tangible reflection of the war's history.
