This picture came from the archives of Golf 2/7 and is captioned as being a Mike 3/5 Marine. Does anyone know who this is (time frame unknown).  Note the writing on the helmet. (Michael (Turk) Wears identified the guy with the "Stop! Don't shoot, I'm short" on his helmet as Gary Wells, on patrol sometime in February or March 1968).
