"Vietnam Gun truckers" - the Army soldier who came up with the idea while fighting in Vietnam named his converted hardened M54 truck after this song, "Eve of Destruction."

At the time he only heard the song once and liked the melody and name BUT, he had no idea it was a protest/anti-war song until he got back home.

He was part of a fuel convoy (hundreds of supply trucks) and those guys were often ambushed so he came up with the Gun Truck by salvaging whatever they could find, beg, borrow, steal from other Army camps. Mostly heavy machine guns, mini-guns, tires, steel/metal for armor. They painted over the Army Green with all black along with their colorful names... to make them look more intimidating toward the enemy.

His revolutionary idea put to the test (literally) saved hundreds of lives.
For his pioneering and heroic efforts he was awarded the MEDAL of HONOR. He lives in Oregon.

One truck, "Eve of Destruction," was brought back intact and is on display at the Army Transportation Museum at Fort Eustis, Virginia.

Sorry, that I don't know but probably the same as most all Vietnam Vets who were all despised by their own fellow Americans for years after. My Dad told me the only American protester he truly despised once he returned home was Hanoi Jane (Fonda). Never, ever got over her.

A message from the 70's that everyone forgot about today.
