Major Larry Thorne US Special Forces Hero

A good soldier is a good soldier Trip, whichever side he is on. A remarkable life story and Larry Thorne must have seen a lot of action in his time.

I read about this guy before - running around Vietnam at times with a WW2 Mauser - a weapon he was familiar with and preferred from cold experience. I thought his remains were formally discovered though?

I'll reiterate what's already been said - a brave man is a brave man - end of.

RIP

You must have missed this.:

"A single casket bearing the remains of four men killed in a helicopter crash during the Vietnam War was buried June 26 with military honors. Three of those laid to rest were South Vietnamese Air Force crew members. The fourth was a Finnish war hero from World War II who later became a legendary U.S. Special Forces officer."

BTW: Speaking of the Mauser rifle, I wonder if the could be it in the picture of Larry with a rifle slung on his shoulder? :?
