Bruce Hammonds of Bessemer, Alabama Posted this one before of course, but that was several years ago and this being one of my favorite photos of all time, I’m posting it again.
Early in May, 1970, Recon was visiting O Rang, Cambodia, looking to see what was up. A quiet little town, it was completely deserted and our time there now seems idyllic. I had been in country since Dec, 1969 and had yet to fire a shot in anger. It wouldn’t be long before I would see the NVA soldiers 4 or 5 at a time coming down the Ho Chi Minh Trail, carrying their AKs and RPGs.
Der was a heap o’ trouble then!
Despite it’s troubled history, this flag still flies over the Kingdom of Cambodia. Well, not this particular flag. Cossey still has this one.
Keep the Faith, brothers and sisters.
