A SPECIAL FORCES SOLDIER

This is OLD.
I think I first read this in 1969 at Ft Bragg.

As seen by his Post Headquarters

A drunken, brawling, Jeep stealing, woman corrupting liar, with a star sapphire ring, Rolex watch and demo knife.

As seen by his Commander

A fine specimen of a drunken, brawling, Jeep stealing, woman corrupting liar, with a star sapphire ring, Rolex watch and demo knife.

As seen by his Wife

A stinking member of the family who comes home once a year in the back door with a rucksack full of dirty laundry, a hard-on, and three months later goes out the front door for another year.

As seen by Himself

A tall, handsome, highly trained professional killer, female idol, star sapphire ring wearing, demo knife carrying gentleman who is always on time due to the reliability of his Rolex watch.

As seen by the Enemy

The meanest mother fucker in the valley.

Wow, I remember seeing this as a young pup; never knew the artist. Almost like Ed "Big Daddy" Roth interprets the Green Beret. Pretty freakin' cool to a recent HS grad.

That and a ton of other's like it were in all of the shops on Yadkin road towards the end of the RVN conflict.... I once had a few.... no idea where they are now.

The King/Queen of battle were popular as was the MACV oriented ones...all comical but with a great deal of truism involved.

Yep I had that one and a couple of recruiting posters. They are all long gone.
