A surreal Battlefield Vietnam moment …

Standing in a side alley on the streets of Hue and hearing the faint lyrics of “Surfin Bird” drifting down the road.

As the approaching sounds became louder, I edged around the corner to take a quick look, and watched a single enemy trooper ride by on his little scooter. For some reason the visual of a battle hardened trooper riding through the dangerous war torn streets on a little moped made me laugh.

Of course, stepping out onto the street and using my shoulder launched RPG to send him and his little scooter straight to hell only added to my amusement at the absurdity of it all.
