OK, informal poll.

How many of you BITD carried a light green and loam GI camo stick in your LBE as cadet?

How many of you ever owned an GI angle head flashlight?

I still love the smell of canvas and sweat you got off of the old Vietnam-era web gear.

Yes to all of the above! :)

WIWAC, my uncle owned and operated a local marina.  We used to go down there on Friday nights, have a big cookout and camp out.  The next day we would do land/marine navigation training, first aid training and search and rescue exercises.  SAREX's on land are a lot of fun but I always enjoyed our marine SAREX's way more.

EDIT:  T*A*P*S was the end all, be all movie for my cadet squadron.

I don't know how common this was, but who carried the PRC-77 on FTXs and SAREXes? While wearing OD jungle fatigues and sleeping in either poncho or parachute shelters? And did night navigation at 2 in the morning in the jungles hills of North Georgia? Eating cold C-rations 3 meals a day?
