FLASHBACK - Vietnam, boarding junks -1969-70

Boarding inspections on larger "junks" often took quite a bit of time - - after the junk was secured and most obvious threats were eliminated, we had to search every compartment and hold. This was not always pleasant and usually hot and smelly. In photo's we have just stopped this junk and are preparing to board. The skinny guy on bow with M-16 is me, hadn't been "in country" to long as I was still a little pale. The 2nd photo is myself (on bow) and our ET (Electronics Technician) who's name escapes me for now, getting a breath of fresh air after search and wait to re-board the Point Young - - -. Just another day at the office - -
