elephants.jpgIt's Monday126 viewsThis elephant seems to be resigned to going to work as a pack animal. We were somewhere around Ban-Me-Thuot when those elephants came walking into our "field of fire". The Infantry stopped them and checked them out. When they were allowed to go , someone came up with the idea
to pop a couple of pro-jos over their heads. When the rounds were fired, instead of running away the elephants turned and ran straight at us. They didn't get too close before the men that were riding them got them under control.
Anybody remember the elephants?
