Big Joe has just sent the photos above into the Swannies Blog where he is proudly wearing his Vietnam Swans hat.
Joe reports that his hat was:
Spotted on the High Island II, off the coast of Dammam. Just a stone’s throw from Kuwait.
I asked the soldiers that were hanging around a tank, outside the airport in Dammam, if they would let me pose with them. However, it seems the Yemenese have been acting up again and the Saudi soldiers gave me a firm ‘NO!’
Can’t hurt to ask . . . Then again, I wonder if I would feel the sting of several AK rounds hitting me simultaneously?
Big Joe’s an impressive unit – does anything for a good photo of a Swannies hat!
