My Eerie reminder of war.
During the TET Offensive Feb 5th 1968 while in Kontum SVN I "recaptured" this SVN flag complete with bullet ,shrapnel and bodily fluids.
I took the flag from an NVA who no longer had a need for it.
Anytime I want a reminder of what war can include I take it out of my safe and sit and look at it and the memories flood in.
My unit and others from the 4th Division + killed 1,189 enemy in and around Kontum.
THE STORY NOT MANY HAVE HEARD.
I was assigned to C co. 1/22 Inf. 4th Infantry Division, the expendables if you read the story.

Some others from my company who took flags from the NVA/VC.
By the way any NVA flags were given to the Commanding officers.
