    Very cool. I would love to be able to find something like that down here. What missions and timeframe would this have been worn in?

    We stopped sewing the UN insignia on our combat uniforms in the early 90's so this was likely used in Croatia 1992/93 or sometime earlier.

    By 'jacket', you mean 'shirt'.

    The nomenclature on the tag calls it a coat, combat. Shirt is much more appropriate and it's what everyone in the military called them even though a t-shirt was worn underneath which is likely why it was technically a coat.
