1/6 196th LIB Viet Nam 1972
« on: October 16, 2017, 05:22:43 PM »
With many thanks to Rakkasan187, who looked at the photo of this infantryman and told me what all the stuff hanging off his rucksack was.  Our next door neighbor back in Chicagoland was a Sgt. in a mortar platoon the 196th Light Infantry Battalion.  The Chargers were one of the last ground units in Viet Nam in June 1972.  Leigh --since you told me that the box on the top probably held the mortar sight, I made an itty-bitty M81 case to put in Clint's ruck.
