I had a friend who owned a t-shirt that just said "Studies and
Observation Group" on one side and "RANGER" on the other. 😉

Re: What I'd like to give my daughter...

The "Just Die Tired" shirts were made up after the fact by <Diety> knows
who; used to see a lot of them at gun shows, etc., back in the '80's...
They were a real nice design, but I never met anyone who had any idea where
the original art came from.....

UFC wannabe's.

Also remind her that you will be making surprise visits.


Even though it was meant as a joke it's really not that bad an idea lol

Ironically that was required reading in my Health Studies class, probably
7th or 8th grade. Checking those pictures out was enough to make me
cautious.

Did the shirts have the same design as the original "unauthorized"
pocket patch those guys wore?

Yeah, same skull and beret design, with a silhouette sunset behind a palm
and a figure with an AK in a set of crosshairs.....
MACV-SOG design was on the pocket and the back with the sunset on the chest.

I don't think there is 'unwanted attention' for the female persuasion.

He didn't say it was the female in question to which the attention was
objectionable....

Although the implication that said female has a father, brother or
boyfriend who can and will take them apart and spit on the pieces should
keep some of the slimier types from being too persistent, and the more
desirable types polite and attentive 🙂

Re: What I'd like to give my daughter...

I worked with a few guys who served in MAC/SOG, but I didn't find out
about it until I read their names in declassified after-action reports
years after I met them, or someone else told me about it. Unfortunately,
nearly all of their missions were compromised due to a Vietnamese mole
at HQ MACV.
