Message Snipers..Recon 2/1..we were being resupplied by a Heuy in a clearing of

dense jungle in Quang Ngai Province in 70 when, out of no where, 2

snipers appeared. They were camoflouged & had stripes of cloth

hanging from their scoped M14s. They did not mix with us, got their stuff,

and just as suddenly as they appeared, they disappeared. I often wondered

how they got that MOS assignment; I guess it was like Graves Regisgration,

one volunteered for it;memories; some are certainly better than others
