USGI Vietnam Era Whistle
The US Army Signal Whistle is an authentic US Army item that was produced during the Vietnam War era. Each whistle is marked U S and GPI 1971 making this whistle part of the production made for service in the Vietnam War.
These signal whistles were and still are important pieces of US Army issued field gear. They are extremely loud making them great to signal troops who are far away. They can also be used as a distress signal in the woods as the sound will carry very far.

Heavy gauge plastic molding, bombproof and overbuilt like all military vintage. I don't know why, but I love this whistle, just received my second order and couldn't be happier. Brand new condition with a little sign of storage scuff.
Probably one of THE most important pieces of kit you can have out in the woods or camping.. I have zero doubts this whistle in particular could be heard for over a mile away. Also a cool bit of vintage history and a rare item I've never seen outside of keep shooting, seems exclusive for here alone.
The price is absolutely fantastic for the quality and function. Again the plastic is heavy heavy gauge but light in weight. Compatible whistles will cost you much more. Going to add a third one for my next order just to have one in every kit.
