TROOPS DEPLOY IN
OP: WYLDE FYRE IV : Aug 24-26
Welcome to Vietnam : Tickets ONLY in Advance
Ever wanted to play a Vietnam Milsim game but didn’t have the right kit?
Here’s your chance to join the fun and slaughter, check out our minimal kit requirements and come play in the Jungle.
Be part of the first 50 US or 40 VC troops and receive your recruitment package and documents by post.
We’ve spent 6 months of our tour here at LZ English. It’s pretty remarkable here, the flat plains, the lack
of activity from the Vietnamese. The farmers in the small ville outside our fire base seem peaceful
enough. Oddly enough though, there are very few males our age there. Heck, there are barely any kids
either, just lame males, women, and a few old crones. The briefings have told us about the VC and NVA
coming into villages and taking fighting age males by force to work for them. I sure am glad that we
don’t act the same way as those guys. It makes me feel good for being here. For protecting these
people. For helping them as best we can.
We have been in the ville a few times since I got here. Sergeant Page keeps yelling at them all.
Asking if they are VC, where the VC are. I am sure if they knew, they would more than happily tell us.
Especially if they understood the level of anger he has for them. I sure hope they actually don’t know
what he means when he is swearing at them, calling them all sorts of names. Heck, just last week I
watched him push a mama-san around and shove the barrel of his carbine up under her chin and
threaten her. She sure was crying and everyone was angry with him.
I have to say, the worst one in the whole platoon is the guy with the beard that everyone calls
Gomer. I don’t understand why they call him that, maybe it’s just a reference from Gomer Pyle show
that is on the TV back home. I don’t get it, he swears at everyone, and tries to push us all around.
Maybe it’s because he thinks he is too good for the rest of us because he carries that pig in the bush.
Except, I have seen his friends dress him so that Sergeant Page doesn’t tear him apart. I hate it when he
walks point. It’s like he is always looking for a fight in one way or another. I am sure that one day he is
going to do something to a villager and stir up a whole hornets nest of trouble for us. God, I am not
looking forward to that day.
Until then, I will enjoy this warm weather and watching all those aircraft over head. I keep
praying that we never have to call them in, because that means our butts are in a sling and we need
I find it really funny how alert everyone is here. It’s like they are all scared of their own shadows
and thinking something is always just about to happen. Maybe the brass is scared and that is why they
keep sending over all those guys that barely say a word to anyone other than each other. They come in
wearing those strangely coloured uniforms, and always go out wearing face paint. I have heard about
them, guys keep calling them lurps. Frankly, I don’t really care about them or their jobs. If they do their
thing, and we stay safe and sound in this wonderful slice of paradise.
