I was a combat photographer in RVN with the First Infantry Division. I got there in '69 and, by that time, everybody was issued 16s. The Big Red One was pretty strict that everyone carry the same weapons for obvious reasons but I did see a few 14s out there along with some other weapons, i.e., Thompsons, M-3s (I had one of those). Anyway, I dug around in a few photos and found this one of troopers with either Charlie or Delta Company, 2nd Battalion of the 28th Infantry Regiment:



If you look closely, behind the guy carrying the M-60, you can see the stock of a 14. By the way, that was a hot LZ.

Thank you to those Marines for sacrifices made that most of us will never understand.

My new hero. Here's to you Mike. I was also a photographer in the Army. A little later though, '74-'77. Lloyd

Here's some pictures I found that I don't recall seeing in this thread before. My apologies if they've been posted already or if these images belong to you.



This one I found interesting for what looks like a striped birch stock on the rifle in the foreground.
