    Big Red One arriving in-country

    This one I just found is a rare picture of men from the 2d Brigade, 1st Infantry Division landing at Vung Tau on 13 July 1965, at the beginning of the massive US troop build-up in the Republic of Vietnam. The 1st Infantry arrived in Nam with it's old M-14 rifles, the new M-16s going in priority to elite units such as the 173d Airborne Brigade, the 101st Airborne Division or the 1st Cavalry Division.

          Boonierats!

          Here's probably one of my favorite pictures of Vietnam found on the net, the quality of it is quite unbelievable, it shows men of C-1/8 Inf, 1st Brigade, 4th Infantry Division descending the side of Hill 742 located five miles northwest of Dak To during operation MAC ARTHUR, 14 November 1967. The original picture is 2800x2200 and you can see it in all its glory here at CMH: http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/art/A&I/vietnam/cc44262.jpg

            This one I already posted in another thread but I found it truly remarkable so I put it here too, a M551 Sheridan of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. I don't have any other info on this picture unforunately, but it looks like it might have been taken during the Cambodian incursion in 1970.

              Boonierat a guy from some other forum told me to talk to you. So I was wondering if you could tell some facts about the war.

                  The advance is extraordinary difficult, because of three reasons. First of them, as always, is the high fighting spirit of the German soldier.Gen. Eisenhower in a letter to Gen. Marshall, July 1944

                      An excellent idea, Boonie! I lurv it!

                      You've found so many for the 40 yrs thread...

                      Many would make good additions to your ACG HT entries, as well.

                        Beautiful photo taken from a slick flying over a village located near the Black Virgin Mountain (Nui Ba Den) in Tay Ninh province. Vietnam was truly the beauty and the beast: heaven from the sky but a nightmare when on the ground.

                          We did extensive work in this area.. Never got to see very much of it in the day light hours.. Normally inserted around dusk.. Thanks for posting the picture.. It does bring back old memories.. That's a good thing, I think..
