A Marine M60 team lies low, but clearly the assistant gunner has seen something. The assistant gunner wears an eight-point utility cap, while the M60 gunner wears an ARVN rucksack, apparently with foam padding for added comfort. He also uses the lacing method commonly found in Vietnam on his jungle boots.
