IIRC, some units had K-pots then. When I joined in '85, the K-pot was regular issue in USAEUR, but when I got to 1CD in Jan '87, we still wore the steel pot until late that year.

- Bandage pouch (& compression bandage).
- Some guys carried a carabiner on the front of the LBE strap.

Add a bayonet and/or some type of issue or personal combat knife. A poncho, poncho liner, and possibly an isopad,.

Testy, no.
Just seen that you have a habit of not doing your research before you type.

I did not know that. Quite interesting. The first time I saw the K-Pot was in Airborne School in late 1988. I went through Infantry OSUT with the Steel Pot.
