I loved Nam, 1967-1968, yes I survived the TET OFFENSIVE.
So beautiful.
My plan was, when we won the war, I was going to work for Coke.
I enjoyed selling cameras in Charlotte NC; was a service writer for EPOI/Nikon and Minolta in Illinois

Being retired, big money is hard to geT, so Leicais out of my range I can attest that my Leicaflex SL WAS my favorite camera.

Now I'm working in 6x6 with used Bronica S2, mine was lost/stollen during TET.
