Please help me find my shirt!

In approx 1995 I was issued a short sleeve thermal vest. It was olive green and was similar to the 'long john top' only thinner and short sleeve. Believe it or not I wore it until last year. This top in my estimations is far greater than any helly hanson or equivilant, and its issued so it dont cost anything. The problem is, the clothing store in my unit say they dont have a NSN for the vest so therefore cant demand one (the tag washed out many years ago on the old one). Can anyone remember these vests and provide me and my clothing store the NSN?

Thanks

If your clothing store personnel are helpful, they could print out your 1157 (or dig out the book if they still have it), it sounds as if you are describing the t shirt issued as part of the CS95 kit.

prior to CS95 there was a thermal vest. thing. OD. I had one too small, much like a hh running top.
