Green Beret Magazines ?

Does anyone remember the Green Beret Magazine that started in the mid 1960's ?

The reason I remember those magazines is because someone gave me the magazines mostly from 1968 to 1970.

Do you know where you are and to whom you've asked that question?

What's your point HWYNAS?

You need to work on your situational awareness (SA) before you embarrass yourself.

It was supposed to be three sentences. I thought I had posted that.

The last part was that I am working on scanning some of the magazines in pdf if some of you guys would enjoy that. A blast from the past and where SF stands today as it is.

Shouldn't be if they're the originals published by then 5th SFG PAO - might be a consideration if they're the copies put out by Steve Sherman at Radix Press.

A monthly magazine produced in Vietnam by 5th Special Forces Group (Abn). All 52 issues have been carefully reprinted on glossy paper stock and bound in five paper-bound volumes representing the years of publication (1966-1970). There is a detailed index as well as a list of SF losses listed alphabetically and chronologically in Volume 1 (1966). A hard-bound collectors edition, in two volumes, is also available.

I have the orginials but since someone else is re-printing the magazines.

Probably best to not upload the few magazines I have.

It is amazing what one can find on the internet these days.

Anyone remember the "Decader" before it became the Drop? The paper sheets were like newspaper quality and the only coloring I recall was the green print on the front cover!!!!
