The trophy weapon that CPT Zec has in his hands, in the photo taken at Camp Alpha. Believe his is the same as mine and that while commonly referred to as an SKS, is really a Chinese copy, properly referred to as a “CHICOM TYPE 56” or CKC. However I most often refer to mine as an SKS, and then say it is a copy of a Soviet SKS.
This photo is of me at Can Tho with my legal “bring-back” weapons; a K-54 pistol & SKS. FYI: Got the pistol at FSB Cai Cai from a SF MSG & the SKS from CW2 Phenice (sp?), one of the OH-58 “Bartender” pilots. Note: Still have them both & still shoot them about once a year. John Harris.

'Me with a Bud in the 18th CAC Officer's Day Room. On the wall is what I recall to be the mission board which if I remember correctly, we would check each night, to see what our aircraft, crew, mission and show time would be for the following day.
Note the removed signage: Besides the joke sign re. the "Green Delta Taxi Service", believe the small sign next to my left leg was from "Paddy Control" - the ATC folks who provided radar advisories across the Delta. I think it says: "Eyes and Ears of the Delta" or something close to that'
