What's this?

Up in I Corps all the Vietnamese girls wore "pajamas". At least they looked like pajama shirts and trousers. For the six months we spent in I Corps, we never saw an Army nurse or any kind of skirt. We never saw a PX.  How surprised we were to learn that the Big Red One and 101st Airborne in III Corps had been enjoying PXs, recreation facilities, etc. Biggest surprise of all to visit the Phouc Vinh PX and see a cute Vietnamese girl with American style hair and a real skirt.  More December 1968 shots now running on the slideshow. Click on it if you'd like to read the captions.
