Hey Army ya got a Chinook to come get us !
That's how I met my first SEALs back in 1969 in Vietnam
Picked up about 6 strange looking hard-as-nails men at Ben Tuy Navy Base in IV Corps to take them down to Sea Float.
These men with long beards wearing sleves cut off t-shirts. with some in ERDL Camo tops all in shorts and wearing high top canvas tennies, (coral boots I found out many years later.) He also had a strange weapon too..
"What the heck is that", I asked?
It was short looking kinda machine gun thingy. With no butt stock ,a hunk of broom handel under the fore stock and a hugh round magazine.
"Oh," the man carring it said "that's a Stoner 63.
"So whats it shoot?"
That was the first time, but not the last time I met SEALS..
And no they didn't give a shit about no maroon beret. In the delta they wore either black ones or some camo ones like this ERDL one here in this photo
