Yours truly along with my door gunner ready to be dispatched on a night mission with our trusty side arm a 7.62 Mini Gun! Some have seen this before.

I can SMELL it! Those smells are something you never forget. I was already home when this was taken, having been discharged in Jan. '68.

Thank you for your service, sir.

Great photo Larry, and thank you for your service! I have a good friend who served in Viet Nam and has shared many of his photos with me as well as told me many stories. I was in grammar school when you took this.

Nice pic, Larry. My brother served in Vietnam (SAS). Unfortunately I don't have many photos from his service days.

First of all let me thank you for your service, Dewman!! When you were being discharged I was probably just entering Advanced Rotarywing Flight School at Ft Rucker, AL. You absolutely never forget the smells of Vietnam they stay with you forever. Thanks for your comment, My Friend, its much appreciated!!
