Edwin L. Oswald Collection
Hello, my name is Larry Oswald. That's me in the picture. I was the supply officer of YRBM-16 from April of '68 to February of 1969. This is one of the Hueys on our helicopter pad on top of the barge. That's an M-60 machine gun I'm cradling and notice how we modified it. On the right front of the gun, there's an extra grip attached with some banding material; that way the gun can be picked up and fired from the shoulder and you can stop it from climbing up to the right when you use it. The reason I'm so happy is that this was the day when I had fewer days left in country than I had days in country. I was over half way and feeling short.
