BLACKHORSE ? SIR?
By Larry Doyle
When I joined the Blackhorse in Vietnam in1970 the patch was quite distinct. It was a black horse reared up on it's hind legs with his, quite prominent... how shall I say, John Thomas, pointing the way.
"Wow," I thought, "This is so cool. We get to wear these?" I really didn't want to be there, but this was way cool. I thought it unlikely at first that the Army would allow an anatomically correct logo, but then these were real men. And, real horses are hung like... well, horses.
I never saw the new version of the
Blackhorse insignia until the day I put on my newly issued Class-A's and
jumped in the back of the that deuce-and- a-half in Dion, headed for Ben Hoa
Airbase, then home.
