QUARTERMASTER

Getting started can be a tough thing for a new recruit. Fortunately there are a lot of resources available and vendors who can supply accurate, period-correct equipment.

 

Still, it is always a good idea to check with the authenticity NCO before purchasing gear to make sure you are buying the correct items in the right order. When in doubt, ask.

 

Listed below are some of the basic items you will need to purchase within the first year or so of joining the unit.

 

Links are provided to unit-approved vendors for each individual item. Please check with the authenticity NCO if you plan on purchasing these items elsewhere.
