Patrol in the Paddies

Compared to the state of readiness, gear levels, and technology the war in Vietnam appears to be fought on very different terms. Note the limited gear, ammo load out, situational awareness and casual demeanor of all involved. Perhaps the difference between draftee and regular army? Or is it the sultry tropical weather? Perhaps morale is low.

What ever the reason we hope this boys made it back to base in one piece.
