From the illusion to the reality then back to the illusion is an impossible transition.

gnatlee, when that picture was taken I was assigned to H/17th Cav. at Holloway that was formerly B/7/17th prior to the reorganization the happened when they formed the 1st Aviation Brigade.

In 1972 H/17 was still covering the AO doing the typical Cav. Huntet/Killer mission. I was a Pink Team Leader at that point.

I agree, "If you 'aint Cav..............."

PS:, We were callsigned "Undertaker" and our Scouts were "Scalphunters"

I have news for these morons, america gained it's freedom after the revolutionary war! I think we have been a free country ever since then but i have some doubt after obama gets re-elected! God help america!

A huge thank you to all the Viet Nam Vets. You went through hell over there and came home to more of it. I was in high school at the time and the draft had the number lottery. I had a high number and never got called but my brother and all his friends did. A lot of them came back screwed up in one way or another and there was almost no support for them. It was and is a disgrace that these Vets did not get the respect and care that they so richly deserved. I'll never forget the scenes of our men walking through airports to chants of "baby killer" from low life hippie "peace-nicks". I still makes me angry.

Here is another one that, along with others too many to mention, should never be forgotten for what they did for their brothers-in-arms in Vietnam. I salute this sargeant with heart and soul.
