Does it look it?Did you guys apply any polish (without buffing) just to make the leather more water/rot resistant?
Haha, no it doesn’t look it. But I wasn’t sure if you did it like once a month or two or something.Does it look it?
You may understand guys getting rocketed & shot at on a regular basis developed quirky 'luck'. Well my 'luck' was my boots until my luck ran out during Tet. But I see where your going with this Sir...
Couldn’t see that on my phone, but very nice.Now look at my ammo box in the picture, all belted tracers more surprised you didn't comment on that. Love ya pap
Of course, we ran regular tracer 4/1 M-60 load out. But all tracers could light up some very flammable hooches in a mission into Iron Triangle 'free fire' zone. Yes it was legal at the timeCouldn’t see that on my phone, but very nice.
On my gun truck I just ran the regular tracer interval. We did delink and go with 100% tracers for some 4th of July celebrations… until we set a nearby palm grove on fire.
But yeah, you get back to the patrol base/outpost and it’s always weapons maintenance and getting your kit ready for the next patrol/attack. … then you rest, and joke around until you do it all again hours later. I’m glad we were far from the flag pole and I never had to worry about the anger from Sergeants Major with too much time on their hands.
About 20 years for me also. The Huey pilots used to take us for rides a couple times a week down the cape. Doors open in the summer, flying over all the beaches waving to the ladies in bikinis. Good times.I haven't been in, or under, an aircraft that had its doors open, or off, in over 20 years. I miss it so.
That joke works for just about every military aircraft.I thought the same answer only instead of a 53 I thought it couldn’t be a 47 as there is not enough hydraulic fluid in the pic.
