Ayres, Brown, and Ryan:  They seem really proud of that M-60, they probably stole it from another unit.

These Marines were with mobile CAP 2-3-4. Front row left Mark Rutter, unknown and Cpl. Gil. Phil doesn't know the name

Does anyone remember this PF or the child?

The Vietnamese - Phil doesn't recall these two and doesn't think they were their PF's, they are too decked out. They may have been ARVN'

Can you indentify the Marine dressed like Clint Eastwood or the other Marine?

Can't tell what he's doing unless he's trying to dry some papers.

Typical scene - Pull him over and check him out.
