call the VFW closest to you. A member may be his size and have them

Thanks Everett Not sure how that would work though since he would have to sew his patches on .

I’ve contacted eBay sellers with special requests before, and they are usually accommodating. I’d bet that one of them would ship overnight or second-day — on your dime, of course.

I said have them... a number of my friends from various branches of service have various uniforms they no longer fit into and might part with or donate them to a fellow service member. Either way, if he buys new old stock (assuming he can locate them) he still has to sew his patches on....

Folks at local chapters of VFW's and nearby VFW's will know each other pretty well and may not only know someone, but may know an another source that is hard to flesh out on your own.

Army Class A Uniform In Original Vietnam War Uniforms at https://www.ebay.com/b/Army-Class-A-Uni ... 7022164700

There were 52 results today.... obviously size matters but there are some... some offer 1 day shipping.... what is your deadline date?

That makes sense Everett, I was thinking he would borrow them and return them . with a stroke of luck my daughter and Son In law found what we needed @ a surplus store @ Ft Campbell and are overnighting them . thanks every one for the suggestions .
