    I don't now about the yellow her skin seems a little red. I was in Thailand and Cambodia and Loas and The Republic of South Vietnam in the late sixties and I don't remember any yellow anywhere though. Just miles and miles of green. I was there the year before you. I left in fall 67...

    My vietnam service medal the green one has the silver plague with the dates 1948 and I think 1954 on it. It is one of the very old ones. The newer ones had modern dates.

    Sorry for going off topic

    Well in my case, there is no salute necessary. I was not a combat soldier and my greatest threat was VD.

    No salutes necessary. I was officially a non-combatant. Altho, this didn't show and so the 'other guys' didn't know it.

    There is so much character in this shot... but I agree it's on the yellowish side. At the same time, that tint has its charms, since it adds a vintage look to it.

    About 20% less yellow

    this color must be really off - it does still look yellow.
    thanks for honest comments.

    Well I only slept on the ground a couple of times. Humped crap though the elephant grass twice... or stood out in the monsoon a few times... those poor devils did it day in and day out.

    The c130 and choppers I rode in came under fire often enough for me to get combat pay, once a month I think, but no matter what they tell you on tv, it takes a lot to bring those things down. Mostly they are just a big old empty box. Hits pass right through them. Unless you are unlucky enough to be sitting in the path of a stray bullet, you didn't have much to worry about back then. Unless you were in a combat insertion or pickup. In my case I was just joy riding.

    Worst thing for me were the mortar attacks. Those were more terror than real damage I suppose in retrospect. So truth is the real guys who deserve thanks are the mud marines and the dog faced kids.

    Almost without exception, I have heard them say, the real heros have their names on a black wall.

    Ain't I just so brave NOW...
