I was looking at some old photos I took while I was in Vietnam and thought I would post this picture. I took this where I was at on Fire Base Blackhawk. This is a M48 Ensure 202 Roller Mine Sweeper Tank. Tell these guys there weren't any WMDs. When we would go out into the feild these guys would lead the group looking for them. The wheels on the front would find the mines! Till you road a few miles in there shoes or Tank I don't think someone who hasn't been there should say much about WMDs not being a problem or not being there. They were hid just like the ones these guy looked for! Give our Soldiers a break they sometimes "gave all" so you can live in peace in the USA!! Back them don't belittle them. Mark H.

That was a very large Base sorta like a City. What did you do there? It was a well defended rear area that we used to get supplies from once in a while and use there hospital they had. Mark H.

only spent a few days there! i was not a combat GI.(REMF) i almost hate to admit it but i inspected army post offices, not glorified but back in the day snail mail was very important. if memory serves me the PO and Hospital were across the road/street/path (whatever) from eachother.
