About author:

My name is Mr. JAROSLAV JOCHMAN, I am military historian and researcher. I served as NCO with Czech Armed Forces. My interest in subject of USMC Uniforms / gear / accessories dates back to 1990s, when I started to collect USMC Uniforms, insignia, chevrons, 782 gear and publications. Over past 30 years I have gathered interesting collection of uniforms and 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 may do grammar mistakes, so 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.
