    It is so unfortunate that so many of us had to "escape". I always contrast this in my mind with those who feel the need to escape the USA. They pay a quarter and cross the Bridge at Laredo. Running like mad because you never know when the border patrol is going to try and stop them from leaving.

    I am glad she got out, but sad she had to enure 15 years before she did.

          • May, 1968 - Three dead VC. Notice the people as they move quickly from the area.

            • 25th Inf. taking a break near Cu Chi, Feb. 68. Notice what he doesn't travel without?

                  • Here's a good picture I've scanned from one of my books for a guy on a french Vietnam forum, it shows men of the Big Red One near Bien Hoa in 1965. What makes it interesting is the M14 carried by the running soldier, you don't see many pictures of Army units equiped with it in Vietnam. It was mostly the 1st and 25th Infantry Divisions that used it during 1965 and the first few months of 1966 before switching to the M16:

                      I think M14s may have been a little more persistent than you think. We were still being issued M14s when I first arrived at Chu Lai in Oct 1967, in support of the 196th LIB. I still have orders, issued later in my tour, showing M16 qualification by my entire unit as we switched over. Note weapon hanging up by my hootch rack.

                              • Yeah, it's hell if you're caught in an ambush and even worse for those who get hit. Sure was glad to see all kinds of artillery, helicopters and planes at different times.
