    im a recently retired Army guy. My wife is looking for a Navy camo uniform for an art project she is doing (kristinlaflamme dot com). Any fellow vets out there able to hook me up with a old set they have hidden down in one of their kit bags? Something we can hand over at the Dragon?

    Much thanks, Art

    It'd be sweet. I've been able to help her secure most of the other stuff she needs, but the Navy camo has been elusive. And if you check out her website, she is all about the fabrics. She makes cray-cray stuff.

    This old Navy guy couldn't help but notice the thread but will refrain from commenting upon what the modern world has done to tradition. Nathan would more than likely not understand but he'd have no choice but to lock me up in the brig for my language. However, good luck in your quest, my co-pilot quilts as well.

    Seemed like an ideal opportunity. Hell, it seems like just about every trade and exchange happens at Fontana during Dragon week, by who a couple of vets hooking a quilter up with an old uniform that is only collecting dut, right? Shoot, for that matter, we should all break out the old ones and actual burn them in a bonfire, like we've always threatened to do!

    I know from tradition and have seen the way it is torn asunder in the modern world. Not Navy traditions...yet plenty from my youth.

    Thanks. If all else fails, I think she is going to get something from either eBay or drive / have me drive to Virginia Beach. But so far we've done well vet-to-vet rounding up the bits and pieces she needs. I'm kinda hoping the Mini community pulls thou on this one!

    If it does, a little representation of the MINI wings badge hidden somewhere in the cammo would be a nice touch.

    Had my NAVY buddy check, but he tossed all his old ones when he came back to CO to be a recruiter. :(

    Just 1 set! She has a project she is working on, and is in need of just a single set - preferably blouse and pants, but she'd be willing to take whatever she can get!

    Never knew a woman who wouldn't. (Just couldn't leave that alone...my apologies.)
