Some pics someone posted on news groups. Don't know any info as to ownership, unit, time, etc.

Also, if anyone out there is having trouble viewing pics because you are on dial up let me know...I forget that not every one has a cable modem or some other kind of broadband connection, and I don't know how long it takes the pics to load up...

Great pics. I especially like the pic of the guy with the M-79 Grenade launcher because its obvious that he is just showing off for the camera since the two guys behind him are just walking casually.

Glad you all like the pics.  Those were some good men and they had to fight in the midst of a divisive political climate.  All politics aside, they did their duty for their Country, just as their sons and daughters are doing now.

I had hoped to make a duplicate thread with just urls, but thinking about it now that would just add more clutter to the forum.  I know what it's like to let all these pics load up on dial-up, and am glad to know that they are worth the wait.

I don't have any more now, but if I run into any, I'll try to post them.

Yes Top Shirt you were young. It was sad to see the "stares" on so many young faces. Boys who should have been home chasing girls and fixing up their "rods".

I looked through all the pictures to see if any of the unidentified Marines were some of my friends, but they weren't.

The Wikipedia article on that famous (infamous?) pic says that the photographer felt bad because the police officer doing the shooting was a good man...apparently the man being shot had just been involved with carrying out an attack that resulted in the deaths of police officer's and their family members.

Quote:
South Vietnamese sources said that Lém commanded a Viet Cong assassination platoon, which on that day had targeted South Vietnamese National Police officers, or in their stead, the police officers' families; these sources said that Lém was captured near the site of a ditch holding as many as thirty-four bound and shot bodies of police and their relatives, some of whom were the families of General Loan's deputy and close friend. (In some accounts, the deputy was a victim as well; in others, the number of murdered relatives were as few as six.) Photographer Adams confirmed the South Vietnamese account, although he was only present for the execution. Lém's widow confirmed that her husband was a member of the Viet Cong and she did not see him after the Tet Offensive began. Shortly after the execution, a South Vietnamese official who had not been present said that Lém was only a political operative.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nguyen_Ngoc_Loan#Prisoner_execution

But, in a country that believes in due process, and doesn't publicly execute prisoners, and doesn't even condone the executions of terrorists, rapists, child molesters, kidnappers, nor murderers it is easy to see how this would be a negative for the U.S. and its support for South Vietnam.

Hidden A Marine 106mm recoilless rifle team set the weapon on its tripod in one of the Hue University classrooms, to take out an enemy machine gun. Accord'ing to one of the gunners, 'we fired it with a lanyard where we knocked out our objective - we kind of knocked out the building that the 106 was in too, but it didn't hurt the gun, once we dug it out.'
