HAHAHAHA!

Why not make it something along the lines of "Make Love War" or "Make love a battle zone" if that makes sense????

In a picture a soldier from 8th Regiment, riding atop a 9th Division armored personnel carrier has "HIPPIE" written on his helmet.

My favourite:
Bomb Saigon Now
Bomb Hanoi Now
Bomb Disneyland Now
Bomb Everything

I like this one too:
Drop the bomb, end the world!

And I think the Ace of Spades drawn on the helmet is kinda classic...

My uncle's 'nam helmet didn't have a phrase on it, but if he wrote one on it now, it would say "Thank god for Kevlar" around the bullet hole

I would tend to agree. However, most of the photos I've seen from Vietnam show little foliage use by Army Infantry. Not saying they didn't use it. I've also noted photos where the soldiers used burlap strips to break up the shape of their steel pots.

As for the topic at hand, I can offer a few that I have archived from photographs:

"Death from Above"
"The Herd" (Referance to the 173rd AB nickname)
"Pot is better than peanut butter"
"Make love, Not War"
"Peace"
"This Side Toward Enemy"
"Where is Lee Harvey Oswald now that we need him?"
Various Unit Insignia
Various Womens Names
Various Short Timer Calendars

That's a good one.

Unfortunately, I'm all out of quotes.

I think it was on the movie Hamburger Hill where I saw this one, "Comin' Home." But of course the guy wearing it never got to see home again.
