Green Berets-Boris Vallejo-1966

This story is unique in comic book history as it is the only interior story penciled by one of the most successful fantasy painters and illustrators of all time. Boris is best known for his slick monster mag covers and colorful depictions of dragons and damsels and sword-weilding heroes based visually upon himself!

If saw that story in 1966 I would construe it as pro war propaganda. A couple o years latter they could not use it for that as the war it was too unpopular.

Entertaining story, but they ceased using Thompson SMGs well and truly by the mid 1960s.

They'd be issued with either M-16s or Karl Gustav M/45s by that time and no way would they'd wear their berets in the field !
