Cotton Sateen Utility Uniform - Type H Uniform

1952 - 1982

This uniform was standard issue for both stateside use and overseas deployment at the beginning of the Vietnam War. For Army and Air Furce personnel within SE Asia, the uniform was eventually replaced by the Tropical Combat Uniform (jungle fatigues). Outside SE Asia, however, the OG-107's remained the standard uniform for both Army and Air Force personnel thoughout the 1960's and 70's.

The OG-107 is one of the longest issued uniforms by the US Military seeing use from 1952 until 1982 when the Army adopted the Woodland Pattern BDU - followed by the Air Force in 1986.

OG-107 "Type II" production began in April 1963, where the most significant change was the clipping of pocket flaps so they no longer appeared rectangular.

The patch represents the crest of the Tactical Air Command (TAC), one of three Air Force Commands, which had control over tactical air assets and air defense. It was established in 1946 and was deactivated in 1992.
