How are those neck nooses fastened to the prisoners? Easily removed by hand? Or by key? Or by some other means?

'Twere I guarding prisoners I would NEVER allow their hands to be free/unrestrained unless within a holding cell.

Thank you. Awesome Tribute to the men & The Rifle

I was an 18 year old lad in HS in '74. I had registered for the draft as required and I know my mother was very worried that I'd be headed to 'Nam as soon as I finished HS. I realized this would likely not happen as the TV's were brought into the classrooms to show CBS/NBC news bulletins on the US forces pullout. I first shouldered an M-14 in the Navy as a SARB team member aboard my sub tender in La Maddalena Sardegna. Love at first sight.
Many thanks to all whom contributed the awesome archive photos of for themselves, the rifle and the riflemen who shouldered them in Viet Nam.
As a young lad raised right in a military family I never did understand the disrespect shown our vets of that Viet Nam era. Soldiers, sailors and airmen were always the good guys to this kid.
Again-
Thank you for your service and the pictorial tribute

Thanks from mic52, Kazz and Itsadryheat

You've got to love those Nam era M-14's. In fact if you stray too far from the M-14 that was used back then in the Nam I lose all interest in them. It must have a forged receiver, 22" chrome lined barrel, GI flash suppressor with a lug and built with any many GI parts as can be scrounged up.
