That's exactly what I thought it was when I searched. I'll have to
check for that quick release zipper thing.
Thank you to everyone else for your replies!
I won't use oxyclean and I'll definitely try Home Depot or Lowe's for
some enzymatic cleaner.
Hopefully we can get rid of the smell enough to try it out this

I looked at your two photos and it looks to me like an ex-Army jungle
hammock. I found one abandoned in a demolished building site when I
was a teenager, and I used it for years!
You will know for sure if it is the real military hammock, because the
zipper had a quick-release mechanism. If your camp came under fire you
could pull the attached cord, and the hammock would open and let you
roll straight out onto the ground.
Three feet onto soft earth won't hurt you, as long as you remember not
to stick out your arms!
I hope you can get rid of the mildew. I am trying to clean up a tent I
picked up at a garage sale. It too was packed away wet. It's a pity,
because it was once a very good quality piece of camping gear.
