    Not real sure what this could mean, but, did you by chance use this same attachment on another THR post? If so, I don't believe it will let you do that.

    I recommend the book "Vietnam" by Larry Burrows.

    You can find a bunch of pictures from it online, come to think of it.

    This one is actually of me and three friends - Pleiku Province, Vietnam, 1968.

    that picture of the vietcong is crazy...

    seems like i havent seen many images like that one...

    those guys fought in sandals?

    pretty scary. they have weapons from china and russia and they didnt even have shoes or boots.

    i guess a commie has to have his priorities.

    these are all amazing pictures thanks guys.
