The Driver

The Line Haul Driver in Vietnam.


The truck driver in Vietnam, was like any soldier that went through boot camp.  18 or older, a kid at best, into fast cars and girls.  The army put him in a truck for 365 days and said "go to work" and work he did.   


Sometimes driving a truck with missing windows or holes in a canvas top.   The driver delt with aging trucks, rain, heat, mud, bugs,traffic and the enemy.



Once the driving was done for the day, for some unlucky drivers there were flats to change.
