    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    Thank you for saving these. On the one's posted there were a lot of familiar things but little I actually recognized - except for the MACV patches. These pictures were apparently several years prior to my deployment. I still have a box of pictures I'd taken, but I look at them now and recognize very little.

    These are lost memories and meaningless to strangers.

    Great save!! About 20 years ago I bought a box of photos from the estate of a WW2 vet, and contained within the more usual wartime and postwar pictures were a bunch of nudes of what I presume were Filipino prostitutes! Probably not appropriate for a 4th grader but what can ya do

    I love saving old pictures. Those should never see a trash can. Good for you for saving some very important history.

    We found some Vietnam photos way back in the 70's. We should have left them at the dump. Gruesome beyond belief.

    My sentiments, exactly. I have a photo of my grandfather in the 80s wearing his old WWII Navy uniform. When I asked recently what ever happened to that uniform, I was told he threw it away after taking the picture. Probably thought no one would care about it, but I would give a weeks pay to have it in the family.

    I was attached to the 452nd Tac Hospital unit at March AFB between '63 and '69. I was an Operating Room technician. I never had the desire to take pics of my work area but I did take pics on two frequent occasions: (1) Those taken of C-119's coming from NAS Alameda while landing and unloading the wounded; and (2) pics taken of B-52s practicing takeoffs,'go arounds', 'touch and gos' and landings. Today I could find similar pics on the internet faster than I could find mine--if I even still have them.

    What an incredible find. I'm a brit and we weren't involved but I grew up in those days and always watched the news and TV programmes on the war(and still do) Total respect to all you guys who served your country.

    A good save.

    I just barely missed being drafted for this war. A lot of my neighbors in the country side went.

    My best friend for 30 years of hunting went. I didnt meet him until the early 1980's. He was my best friend and I miss him. Think about him alot.
