These were my Dog Tags and when I came home I made sure they had some Veitnam Red Gumbo Clay Mud on them that I spent a lot of time in during the Monsoons. It still is stuck to them after 33 years! I can remember haveing mud caked boots and wet socks for months on end. It is a wonder my feet did not rot off! Mark H.

I have two sets here. One from each branch I was in. Of course I was a REMF. There's some that thinks I should be ashamed. I did what I was told. Nothing to be ashamed of there.

BrudderLes you had a choice and made it. Now live with it and quit making excuses for it. I don't feel one bit sorry for you or see how yer great sacrifice to keep us all free did anything except keep you home.

Some younger folks might not know that draft dodgers used the reserve system to stay home from a war in the 60's and 70's and you stay at home boys can't be put in the same catagory as these fine young Americans of today who make up our defense.

I have more respect for the boys who went to Canada in the 60's, at least they could be gone from home over night.
