US rifleman on patrol Vietnam

I have painted the face and the first uniform highlights on this figure. The face tends toward Latino, Asian-American or African-American, so I am trying for Latino compexion. This set is excellent and has lots of optional accessories for " 'Nam," which is one of the wars we won of course!  Actually, if you ask a US right-winger, we've won all our wars -- yay!

I guess you're right Alex. I didn't think about it too much. I looked at some photos from military books and saw enough guys loaded like that so I modeled it that way. Maybe "patrol" is the wrong word -- more like "redeployment" or "manoeuvre."

Now I'm watching a documentary on the US war in Vietnam, and these "search & destroy" missions could last up to 30 days. So the troops are carrying packs on their backs, as they do not return to base for up to a month. KB
