dan01 - I didn't say "green tracers" in my loads, I said "tracers" and the incomings were green in '69 in I-Corps also. The reds are what I use for that reason alone. I know there were times when both us and them used the other sides tracer colors for distraction value (LRRP"s were good about having an AK or SKS on hand for that reason alone: Charlie would light 'em up in ambush and the Lurp would shoot green back just to make them pause and think while our guys di-di'd!). Were you a "trainer" with the ARVN? If so, you had a hell of a hard job; thanks for all you did!
