Tiger Force 1969


This photo sent by LT Warren D Cook. Camp Eagle, in the Phu Bai area.1969. The soldier with his hand on his hat is a medic. Identifiable by the spaghetti tubing (tournequet)on the front of his shirt. Several men are carrying ropes, imlying activity on steep ground. Grubby unifornms means they just got in from the field, and gathered to shoot the picture before scattering for stand down "activities". Names and position in the photo to follow. If you see yourself, contact me.
