Podcast: What was it like to hump the boonies in Vietnam?
Hey everybody, welcome to my first podcast!
Today’s topic is an attempt to explain what it was like for Army Infantry Soldiers to hump the boonies during the Vietnam War. I’ve used 90 photos for this show ‘n tell presentation which I’m confident will help listeners better understand what many of us grunts experienced during our tours.
After watching my presentation, you’ll have answers to the following questions:
- What was it like for these young men to hump through the countryside while carrying a rucksack and other supplies weighing almost as much as they did?
- What did they have to carry in the bush?
- Was it more difficult to hump in one area of the country versus another?
- Did it get easier over time?
Well grunts, did I nail it?
I’m anxious to see your comments below and welcome any additional information that might have been overlooked.
