    Just saw this on FB-- a very cool soldier playing a very cool looking guitar-- looks like he might be playing something a little sad since I think that's an Am chord he's fingering.....

    Thanks for posting. IMHO that's a great photo. Chock full of feeling and quiet emotion as well as some nice movement in the eyes, facial expressions and playing.

    That’s Jim Froese, The “Oklahoma Kid”. Served in VN. You can find an article about him on the net. I didn’t post the link due to forum rules.

    If you expand the pic, he painted “Oklahoma Kid” on his helmet.
