You will need to order your Riders Berets and Pins. We did send the sizes to the Las Vegas contact but last time I talked to him he has not ordered them yet.

Jim and I ordered our berets from http:\\www.acuarmy.com I think you want item # BRT0085 but be sure you order the size you need, the item # changes depending on the size of beret you order.

To order the pin go to the http://www.vfwstore.organd order item #8121 2 1/4" metal emblem.

Sorry about the inconvenience but that is what Jim and I had to do to get ours.
