I first started collecting Militaria in the early 90's and one of the first items I ever picked up for my USMC collection at that time was this pair of NOS WWII USMC Rough Out boots aka Boondockers. I bought the pair of boots from a dealer at Kaiser Bills in Pomona CA. At the time it was one of the most expensive items I ever bought for my Militaria collection, although today it would be a steal at the price I paid for them. Currently I'm gathering and collecting all the items that would have been in 782 Pack, these boots being in the lower knapsack.
