    This thread is pure greatness.


    Major Larry Thorne (a.k.a Lauri Törni) in Vietnam.

    These pics were just floating around so I don't have much info. I assume they're from '65.
    If someone needs more info I'll be back in a week and probably with more pics.

    Heh, in that last pic there is a kind of Van Damme look on Törni.

    Now you know who Van Damme got his "look" from.

    Hah that's so true. I've always thought that he's doing some serious posing in that second pic.

    But apparently he was ahead of his time. Van Damme posing, Arnie behaviour...

    Yup, I remembered your request! I'm surprised at how hard Indo-Cina war FFL pics are to find.

    An excellent thread. Thanks for all of the marvelous pics.

    There is obviously a lot of interest in the SF and in particular the SOG operations in Viet Nam. I recently picked up an excellent first-person account on the subject that was published in 2007. Entitled "On The Ground-The Secret War in Viet Nam". It was written by John Stryker Meyer and John F. Peters. Meyers served two tours with RT Idaho at FOB-1. Meyer left the Army, became a journalist, and is now a columnist for the North County Times near San Diego. As one might expect from a professional writer, the book is well done and is recommended to anyone with an interest in SOG operations. It has a number of good photos as well.

    Here is a link for more information. http://realwarstories.com/
