Man, Stik, thank you so much for those pictures!

The rocket-launching Dodge truck is a unique example, glad to hear one still exists. Also I never get tired to see some cool DUKWs! :)
Going to watch them again!

Thomas, you are very welcome! Anybody here is more than welcome to use them as they may need them.

just one more...

This moment made it worth it for me... reliving my 11H days (Heavy Anti Armor Infantryman-aka TOW gunner). One of my fellow AMPS members snapped this shot and just sent it to me Thank you Jake!

Lyle, I do not need to be thanked for that. I have been lucky and privileged to be able to do things that I played at and dreamed of when I was a boy growing up. How many people in life get to say that?

Well, it never hurts to say thanks. My wife and I will stop guys with Vietnam hats or jackets and thank them. We appreciate you, pal.

Those guys definitely need the thanks. They put it on the line when asked for a nation that treated them indifferently at best and quite hostile on occasion when they came home.
