Here are a few more pictures taken up on Mutter's Ridge and at Quang Tri Combat base
Ah, brings back memories. I have very few similar photos. I couldn't keep from breaking cameras...trashed a Nikon, and Mamiya. Welcome home brother.
Welcome and thank you for sharing the pictures...and thank you for your service....What does the term/title GOLDEN WING mean? I swear, as I scrolled down your posted pictures, I could smell the earthy smell of that dugout....maybe it was from my boyhood days on the farm...that smell of fresh turned sod in the bloom of spring time...the robins and other wild birds following along in the furow behind you, gleaning for worms....Chief
Goldenwings is from the Navy/Marine Coprs Gold Jump wings I earned many years ago and still love to jump.
