I just joined this group. Looking through the posts, and checking out the Vietnam photos, made me wonder, so I'll post my thought out here, for everyone.
I'm one of the moderators for a Vietnam riverine group, and almost all of us were US Army, not Navy, so most of us knew each other, or know guys that can verify the other guys.........no 'wannabe's' in the group. I noticed that time and again, someone would write about an incident, then add, "but my photos were destroyed by my first wife", or, "my girlfriend burned everything I had from 'Nam" or some other variation of that theme.
In our particular group, at least 80% of more of the men have had rabid/crazy/po'ed/mad-as-hell wife/girl friends either tear-up/cut-up/burn/ or throw away their Vietnam photos.
I would be interested in an informal poll of this group; how many of you have had the psychotic split tails destroy your stuff?
