Great find!

Two years after those were taken, I was one of the guys teaching some of those classes! I loved the zoo, the survival 'buffet' that came after it, and MSG Pacheco's introduction that came before both of them: "Yentlemen, belcome to dee yungle!"
:D

Great find!:DDitto. Turns out the photog is my boss' older brother (now RIP). Was also the only military photog on podium at LBJ inauguration. Photog Henry (aka Hank) was the oldest, my boss is baby brother at 10 of 11 kids. Small world, I've sent him the link and he greatly appreciates that.
