|This was taken during a Joint Operation in the Delta with Special Forces
and a Tracker Team from the 66th IPCT. From L to R: Patrick McGehee - 66th IPCT, SF
Lt. (?), and a newsman (?). McGhee was the son of a Florida Game Warden and this was
a "joy ride" in an airboat.
|This device used by the Viet Cong consisting of a piece of bamboo and a striking stick, used to tap messages at night time. Just like "crypto" in the U.S. Army Signal Corps?|
|This is a photo of Joseph Journigan of the 66th IPCT who was also a graduate of BJWS.|
|Here are the Platoon Mascots at the 66th IPCT - from L to R: Missie, Mow-Mow the monkey who loved to hug, and Ralph the juvenile monkey who loved to eat double-edged Gillette razor blades.|
|Here is Missie - who lost her eye in the War and was very afraid of boots.|
|Here are Missie's companions: on the left is Roger L. Butts, Missie who is making friends with an unknown Team member.|
|This is the "the Big Iron Bird" taking guys home - at last!
The photo comes from a magazine called "Tour 365" published by the U.S.
Army Viet Nam Mid-Year 1969 Issue.
These two pages came from DeWitt and Rose Roberts, who have been so great in sending in all of these photos that tell a lot about the Trackers! Thanks!!
