This is a picture of Recon Team Maine of Command & Control Central ready to go on a mission. They are dressed in PAVN ( NVA) uniforms as some teams were wont to do. The idea being it gave them a second or two advantage if spotted by the enemy. The idea being the NVA would see them and take a few seconds to determine if they were friend or foe. Some team leaders just had the indig point man in a PAVN uniform, some used the NVA pith helmet for every team member and some decked out in full uniforms.
