    Default Vietnam war era pics of special units, LRRPS, MACV SOG,AATV,SEALS,FFL,GREEN BERETS...

    How about a thread for all the Vietnam era special operations/special forces type units from the Vietnam conflict such as the Green Berets (or special forces) Navy SEALS, MACV-SOG, Advisors, LRRP teams, Australian SAS, French Foreign Legion, ROK, and the many others I left out!

    I started a thread on camo from the Vietnam war but quickly realized that there's alot of cool stuff out there that can be grouped together without worrying about if it's camo or not.

    Many out there, myself included would love to see old personal unpublished photos or any good stuff.

    I'll start it off with some old clasic wartime Nat Geo pics. Many of these pics look better when you click them and make em bigger.

    Wow! Is that ever a blast from the past. We had a subscription to NG when I was a kid. I've read that issue about 100 times.

    I'll be damned, I still have that N.G. issue back home. I have the entire year of 1963, 1960, and 1967. Thanks for sharing.

    The LSSC of MST Detachment ALPHA comes back in from an operation with SEALs of X-Ray platoon aboard. It appears that the radio operator standing on the bow may have a problem judging from his expression and posture. Note the diverse “uniforms” worn by the SEAL and MST operators. The general rule was that if it worked you used it; if not, you didn’t or found something better. Hence, SEALs wearing Levi’s instead of camouflage trousers.

    An LSSC and LCPL underway for a SEAL operation. A Vietnamese LDNN (SEAL) is on the bow. The SEAL facing the camera clearly shows his subdued UDT life jacket. In this 1968 photo, the radar has yet to be removed from the LSSC.

    Not all SEAL extractions were easy; sometimes you had to push the boat [here an LSSC] off the beach when the tide started to drop. The mangrove swamp is typical of the Mekong River Delta and the canals of the Ca Mau Peninsula.
