Can we see som us soldiers with customized gear and customer or personalized weapons like guns and knives?

My apologies for the delay in answering this request.

The most widespread customized gear is definitely helmets and I have a tag for that: #helmet art.

I don’t tag any other specifically customized gear however. I know there are some customized flak vests in the archives, but would require digging through the tag #flak vest. One photo of a US Army sniper features his camouflaged rifle. Another photo displays an M14 with a modified magazine. There are a couple other modified weapons if you “/search/modified” on my blog.

Any info on MACV-SOG ?

Thank you for the posts about LGBT service members this month. Their stories deserve to be told.

No problem! I’m a bit disappointed in myself for not thinking of this in previous years, but I’m glad to be doing it now. I’m glad you’re enjoying the content.

How old are you !

How common was the erdl camo pattern in Vietnam? Specifically helmet covers

I honestly have no idea. If anyone who is more interested in gear knows the answer, please drop a line!

Would you be able to possibly do some posts about SOG units, and distinguished member of said units?

Sure. Check out previous posts under #SOG.

I’m actually in the middle of reading The Secret War Against Hanoi which is about the foundation and operations of SOG.

Request: Images of interesting objects and artifacts that soldiers brought home as souvenirs.

Oooh that’s a good one! I’m not sure I’ve ever posted that before. I’ll try to make sure it has a tag for future reference. Keep an eye out for posts!

27th infantry 25th division Wolfhounds is anyone out there that knows someone still alive that was over there in 1966

There’s not a ton of Vietnam vets here, but try wolfhoundpack.org. They are the only active site for the Wolfhounds that I’ve found, and have a reunion planned this summer. Good luck!
