A gun team in Phan Thiet, South Vietnam

A 106mm Recoilless Rifle team from the 101st Airborne Division
Phan Thiet 1968

Known as the Screaming Eagles in the US army the local Vietnamese called them the 'Chicken Soldiers'
I was never sure if this was due to a mistake in thinking the Eagle insignia of the division was a chicken or a somewhat derogatory sense of humour on their part.
