A few more photos of Vietnam taken in 1967 in the vicinity of SF A-341, Bu Dop.

 

Going to the Team House after Westmoreland inspected the troops.

Thanks for sharing this, a true Warrior.

Interesting photograph. One of the rare ones actually showing the wearing of a "Humped" oval.

Although I must admit I am a little confused as it appears to be a 307 Eng Bn oval.

I learned many years ago to never say never when it comes to Flashes and Ovals.

Has anyone else got a better ID on it?

The oval on Garrett's uniform is for Avisory Team 162. The oval appears to be theater made for his master parachutist wings.

Amazing stuff. I forgot I had a Zippo from the same camp but years earlier. This is from the attack on July 20/21, 1965.
I hope it's ok to add.IMG_20201030_112010008.jpgIMG_20201030_112028301.jpg
