I'm telling you the myth of the Viet Cong is over exaggeratted in my opinion. At least by the time I got there and where I was deployed, the VC were not a real concern. FWIW, I never ran across a single "punji trap" (there were other booby traps though). FYI, I was in an Infantry Scout platoon. We were on foot patrol almost constantly.

Back to the topic:
Question: How many US military women served in Vietnam?
A: 4,367
B: 7,484
C: 38,291
D: 52,281


7.500 around, About 2.1 million total men and women served in the Vietnam war. Two hundred and fifty
thousand lost their lives, were MIA, or injured. A God Done Shame!

It all depended in what OP sector, in some sectors For Example, in Vietnam, the Vietcong (VC) noticed soldiers liked to
kick empty soda cans that were lying on the ground. It was not long before the US troops found that the VC were leaving
explosive devices in empty cans lying alongside regular patrol routes. The devices activated when the cans were kicked.

Thanks for the pics but I know what a punji pit looks like, trust me. I never did see one actually deployed because the VC were not there to use them.
Your guess is close to answer "B". That is correct. Now it's time for a new question from you.

I know it's been a while, but I'll bite and assume I have the right of way to ask another question.

What was the name of the ARVN general that executed a VC prisoner during the Tet Offensive in Saigon on international television?

On 1 February 1969, the final period of the existence of these units began when the Department of the Army re-designated the LRP companies and detachments as lettered Ranger companies of the 75th Infantry Regiment under the Combined Arms Regimental System (CARS). All of the LRP companies and detachments were “re-flagged” as Ranger companies on that date, except Company D (Ranger), which was formed on 20 November 1969 upon the rotation of the Company D (Ranger), Indiana National Guard back to its home state. The third period ended when the Ranger companies were inactivated as their parent units were withdrawn from the war between November 1969 (Company O of 3d Brigade 82d Airborne Division), and 15 August 1972 (Company H of 1st Air Cavalry Division)
