An Anecdote of How Some of the Troops Reacted to AFVN
I thought you'd enjoy this. I got this from a retired Marine Gunny I know.
"I remember it was August of 1970. Me and my squad of Marines were on Patrol during a monsoon rain. I had a, small transistor radio attached the top of my backpack cover with a small plastic bag. The rain was pouring pretty heavily. That when the song "War" by the Temptations and song by Edwin Starr came on. I cranked up the radio and me and the squad boogie across that rice paddie like a bunch insane lunatics. Thank God for those Armed Forces Radio Jocks. They brought a piece of home to us now and then.

music from the Vietnam War era.
