I was cruising eBay and came across this old press photo... seems a little brazen for the field.

Caption for the above.

Sometimes these old wire service photos have some great details to them.

Wow. This is a very good thread.

What do you think of this scarf. Its deffinetly got red and blue stripes and it looks like a white one is in there too.

The photos are from that big 45th Surgical Hospital grouping I have. They saw these guys waiting at an airport with what looked like their families and went over to take pictures and chat. The photo would of been actually taken 1966 or 1967.

I recognize some of the indiginous personnel in the photos. The man without the shirt appears to be Dick Jarvis from the recon company. Fond memories!

Web IMG_0372.jpg Web IMG_0375.jpg Web IMG_0376.jpg Web teahouse.jpg  Here's a few I dug out.

Blue and green was thought up by the CO of C-3 or "A" Company in 1969.
He began addressing himself as "The Professional" and everybody else as "The Professionals."
These were sent to the A Teams along with a trimmed .50 cartridge for a fastener.
B-Teams as well.  I think B 36 prolly kept their old one.
Red and blue was a general camp or team scarf particular to my camp.
Red and Yellow was a bit later and the Blue tip signified recon platoon.  It has been worn quite a bit by yrs truly.
There is another without tips for everybody else in the camp.  Mine is tucked away at the farm.
We basically ignored the one from company, though if we went back on a chow run or steam and cream, we tucked it in a pocket. 
They could get pretty silly about this stuff.
There was a SGM at Nha Trang whose job was to look under your shirt to see if you were using a purloined cargo strap for a belt.
Good for an artical 15 at the time.  The Air Force had reported a shortage and we were considered likely suspects.
They were not real good belts, either.
Mine has shrunk.
