Vietnam Jungle Hammock

In the Pacific Theater of World War II American soldiers encountered jungle conditions in many of the battle zones. The hammocks were routinely used to shelter and protect the injured and seriously ill and by regular troops during monsoon conditions or as a relief from sleeping in the open.

The basic design of the jungle hammock was very successful in World War II, although saw limited use since only certain units ever had them issued. Still, in the Vietnam era an upated version was fielded, basically the same but with new nylon material. The M-1965 used in Vietnam is still the current military version of the jungle hammock.
