Wow! you were a recon Marine? and a Vietnam veteran. I have a lot of respect to the people in the armed forces. Marines is one my favorite branch.
About the beard & the hippy hair, it was probably a myth, but I saw a picture somewhere of an MACV SOG in full black and the appearnce was something
like that. I will post if I can find it.
My location is real. I guess MODs in ATS will be after me (worse, ban me) if I put a fake location. I don't know who does this job in ATS (about IP
address), but definitely, they will find out that I am really in Hanoi, Vietnam. I have been living here since 1992.
Married to a Vietnamese and have a child. My wife is from Hanoi. When I arrived in Vietnam, I stayed in Ho Chi Minh City, (Saigon) for 6 years, before
finmally moving to Hanoi. I actually have travelled to most of the historic places in Vietnam. From , South, Central & North. I have been to DMZ, Cuu
Chi Tunnels, & other authentic war spots. (A lot of spots now are modified so that it would be easy for tourist to hike & observe)
My Father in law was an Army from the north during the war. He also served in Cambodia when Vietnam invaded Cambodia.
It seems that we can have some real good discussions here soon. You were in Vietnam before, did you ever come back here after the war?
