A break from the fighting. Phan Thiet. Memories of Vietnam
Three members of the Regional Forces taking a break from the fighting in Phan Thiet. They usually fought very well when defending their home towns and I found them decent fellows. When travelling on isolated roads I was sometimes stopped and asked for money or cigarettes, but I always carried a carton or two for such occasions and never had any bother with them. These look rather resigned to a dodgy situation. Of course the battle in 1968 was eventually won.
