    you can tell theyre marines immediately by the black, inner tube bands on their helmets. for whatever reason the marine corps didnt issue the od elastic bands that the army did. so enterprising leathernecks would liberate inner tubes and cut their own.
    also interesting is the early usage of ERDL covers which werent generally issued until 1969, and were rarely seen in country in vietnam.
