Thought some here might appreciate this short video on Ben Baker.
The inventor of many of the specialist items used by MACV-SOG during Vietnam.

Thanks for the help

Many moons ago TS asked us to not directly link YouTube videos, so as to not give YouTube "SEO kudos".

I was wondering if there are still men of this caliber still making an impact in Army Special Forces. I grew up reading about these giants. Times change.
