    These pix are amasing, they show the people that made those SOF units what they are today.

    Great pics guys! Thanks for sharing.

    Question: Were soldiers in vietnam trained in double tapping, or "making every bullet count"?

    Cuz I got the impression that it was mostly Spray an' Pray.

    I think it's amazing to see how much less gear these guys were carrying around back then - specifically the pics about the Son Tay raiders. Imagine how much kit guys on a similar mission would carry today.

    Great pics everyone, thanks for contributing.

    I have a couple for ya' from the Popeye archives! I served as an Avation Ordanceman on board the USS Han**ck CVA-19 during Operation Frequent wind. Which was the evacuation of South Vietnam..29 April 1975. CVA-19 was temporaly converted to an LPH for this operation.

    We pushed a total of 19 RVN helos into the Tonkin Gulf that day. We did not know how many helos we had to recover but we knew we had to recover our own USMC helos.

    I wrote the captions some time ago in another internet forum.



    Best pic of an Air America helo I can find. We were not permitted to push these helos into the Tonkin Gulf. The paint scheme was quite striking. Many of the Air America pilots were drunk or stoned when they landed on the Hanc**k CVA-19. No kidding. But what could ya' do? They were the friggin' CIA.


    I was assigned to ships company on the Hanc**k CVA-19. I worked on the flight deck. I loved it...All the aircrew was assigned to the USMC helo squadrons on board. About three weeks before the evac I did get to fly in a CH-53 to USAF base Utapo, Thailand to pick up the mail. We had a blast there.. Major party dude..

    The Marines were susposed to let us fire their 50cal machine guns. They never did. Here is a pic of the door gunners/rescue crewman of HMH-463 lining up to get ammo..I was standing behind the photog when this pic was snapped..Many of those Marines were battle harden vets of the Vietnam war. "They be some bad Mo' Fo's"!!!!...
