This is John with  a captured Rocket Propelled Grenade Launcher. This was a deadly weapon against us in the hands of the NVA.

This is John Masson, of Lake Charles, LA, with a Soviet RPD machine-gun like the one that hit me (.30 cal) on 6 Mar 69.

Virgil "Woody" Woodard and John Lewendownski with some friendly Vietnamese in our AO--taking a break!

This is gathering at LZ Professional to view and record data from enemy weapons we captured in Feb 69--there were many!

This is a picture of LZ Professional from the air. LZ Professional overlooked "Death Valley," and was located at BT173078.

A familiar scene for any infantryman who served in Vietnam.>
