In excellent lightly used condition as seen in the pictures. I bought this directly from Margaret “Peggy” Matarese retired USAF Colonel who served from 1982 thru 2012. The G suits are size small regular and the helmet is probably small. I do not want to rip out the lining to see what size it is. The oxygen mask is size small narrow. She told me she transferred many times and seen many different bases. She was connected with many fighter squadrons from Japan Korea Germany and others. Her husband retired a Colonel too but he has passed away. This would be a very nice display lot with history. I read that only 3% of these flight helmets were women’s. Colonel Matarese graduated cum laude from the University of California at San Diego with a B. In Biochemistry and Cellular Biology. She was awarded a Medical Doctorate degree from the University of California at San Diego School of Medicine in 1986 and was commissioned a Captain in the U. Air Force under the Health Professions Scholarship Program in June 1986. She completed a residency in Family Practice at David Grant USAF Medical Center, Travis Air Force Base, California in 1989. Following this residency, she served as Chief, Family Practice Clinic for the 50th Tactical Fighter Wing Hospital at Hahn, Air Base, Germany and then as a Squadron Medical Element Flight Surgeon for the 512th Fighter Squadron, Ramstein Air Base, Germany. During this assignment, she supported missions in Turkey, Angola, Morocco, Tunisia, Slovenia and Bosnia. In 1997, Colonel Matarese completed a dual residency in Aerospace Medicine and Occupational Medicine at Brooks Air Force Base, Texas and then served as Commander, 89th Aerospace Medicine Squadron, Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland. She then served as commander of the 56th Medical Operations Squadron at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, as commander of the 8th Medical Group at Kunsan AB, Korea, and as commander of the 374th Medical Group at Yokota AB, Japan.
