Tank game   Game

These photos are of a game in one of Saigon's parks. The picture was taken in 1989 when the feelings towards Americans was still a little hostile. The pictures show American tanks and amtrak's and the players try to hit them with rubber band darts to win prizes.

Protest  Protest

These are photos taken at the Concord Naval Weapons Station in Concord California. One of the main munitions loading and storage stations on the West Coast during the Vietnam War.

I was stationed here after being a patients at the Oakland Naval Hospital. This was the worst possible duty station for a returning mad, angry Marine. We had to face these protesters on a daily basis as Military Police . The protester were about as violent as the VC and NVA. We had regular encounters with them and they did not do well. It was a great stress reliever and a place to get out some of that anger. The Govt.' was not too bright in stationing Vietnam Vets here.
