My name is JAROSLAV JOCHMAN, my interest in USMC Uniforms / gear subject dates back to 1990s, when I started to collect USMC Uniforms, insignia, chevrons, 782 gear and publications. Over years I have gathered interesting collection of information, which I try to present here in simplified form of USMC Uniform Guidebook. Please be patient as I am not native English speaker, so I do grammar mistakes and do not hesitate to correct any misspellings, Leatherneck lingo errors and etc. The information will be added and reviewed as time allows, as this activity is only my hobby not regular job. Please do not copy any text, photos and pictures published on these pages without the prior written permission of the copyright owner. Appropriate steps will be taken against any rights violation.
