    From my diary ~ July 1967

    What I wrote down, in the cover of my diary in July of 1967, a popular saying of that time...




    "For those who have fought for it, Life has a flavor the protected will never know."

    Remeber those and have that last one in my note book too.

    One I remember on a lot of lighters was

    USMC
    the
    VietCong
    for lunch
    bunch

    and the ever popular

    Fighters by day
    Lovers by night
    Drunkards by choice
    Marines by Profession


    and in the same line

    There are three things a Marine
    must do in his lifetime.
    Fight,
    Die, and get drunk.
    But by GOD I'll Crawl home
    like a Marine.

    Cool Words on Helmets

    I do remember a lot of peace symbols on the helmets.
    One saying I do remember is "We Got to Get Out of this Place"..
    popular song...when I was there..
    I didn't wear a helmet, I wore my rain hat...
    but this pic below I did see on some...

    Sempers,

    Roger
