Comments from the Curator:

The Tank Museum has one of the largest collections of female uniforms known at well over 300 uniforms and 600 headgear pieces. Over the years it has been observed that female uniforms are now getting the notice of traditional uniform collectors. Prices for WWI female uniforms are now in the thousands of dollars. WWII period uniforms are now in the many of hundreds of dollars with some even in the thousands of dollars as well. But lo and behold uniform collectors just have not begun to appreciate the value (and in many cases) rarity, of many post war types. Rare uniforms such as this AIRBORNE example are sure to appreciate rapidly once collectors realize just how neat they are. Here is your chance to own an affordable female AND Airborne uniform obtained direct from Fort Bragg.
