    187 B&W VIETNAM WAR PHOTOS - from the free table , at the dump .

    I just went to our local transfer station to throw away a bag of trash , and I came home with these .
    Most of them have writing on the backs - but many were once in a scrapbook , so it's hard to read some of the inscriptions .

    These hit home. My uncle was Army Air. He was shot down in 65 and lived. He later flew air rescue later in the war and helped evac the wounded. One thing that always stuck with me is that he said 1/2 of his graduating class died in the war.

    Sad to see someone's service memories in trash, I'm sure it happens every day though. Thank you for saving this history and sharing with us.

    And brave. Thanks for those that served and are serving now. It has gotten to the point that very seldom am I amazed at what people throw away now. Those are family treasures that were almost discarded. I have a friend that came back from Viet Nam and burned all the pictures he took thinking that would help him with his PTSD, it didn't, but in cases like that I understand. At least someone put them on the free table. Thanks for caring enough to rescue them...d2

    It is so sad that these things get tossed. I am so thankful you save them. The more I dabble in watches the more I am leaning toward just collecting military watches. iím going to do a post here shortly when I get all of them back showing my different watches from different wars. .
