Post a picture of yourself from your time in the service.

Here's me in Vietnam, 1971.

Thanks for your service in Vietnam...

I don't have any pictures on disk... But I looked like a kid....

When I would go off base at Fort Hood the MP's were always asking for my military ID if I was in uniform... They thought I was just a local kid playing soldier...LOL

Weird, I just do not seem to have any surviving photos of me in uniform from the 70s, 80s, or 90s, just this one on my 'twilight tour'.



And yes, just the two of us.

I have 5 or 600 from my active duty time but, strangely, only a couple from nearly 13 years in the Reserves and National Guard.

About 60 or so of my Vietnam pictures are posted on www.charliegrunts.com, but none from Germany or CONUS.

I'll bet we all have an official photo like that, one which shows the deer-in-the-headlights look of a new trainee!
