Cindy said she didn't know Russ was in Special Forces. Well, He wasn't!!! He was in a group called MacV Sog. It was Operation and Intelligence. A lot of what he did was the same as SF. He wore no rank, unit patches or name tag., carried no ID. If captured the US didn't know him. He worked with Vietnamese teams that got dropped into bad places like Laos and Cambodia. I can't really tell you a lot as i still don't know a lot. I do know that I'd go weeks with no letters. I just thought he was lazy! LOL I had no idea what he was doing until he came home. He was in the Army and has the Air Force Air medal. That is crazy!!!
