Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

I found this video very indicative of the American Grunt (Infantryman) during my tour over there. I share it with you that you might get a thumbnail of the Grunt circa 1969-70.

To be truthful, I am, as many Americans, unable to speak any language but my own (much to my regret). I do not know what the 'Ghost' is saying.

2nd installment. Listen carefully, you will hear a  grunt describe a common occurrence in my experience, 'Sandbagging a Patrol'.

Pretty impressive Jody.
It clearly describes the brutallity of war and the way the  groundtroops were facing the periods of horrors and boredom.
