Tootsie Pops in Vietnam

A Letter from a Vietnam Veteran

Group of men in the Republic of South Vietnam- 1970

"The enclosed picture was taken in April of 1970 in the Republic of South Vietnam. One of the guys parents sent some Tootsie Pops from home. We thought the picture would be something different."

"The guys were members of Delta Company 196 Light Infantry Brigade of the Americal Division. We were a line company."
