Circumstances Of War

03 Mar

Welcome To Aussie Emus World

Greetings to my friends

I was going through some old photographs today and came across three pictures that on their own tell a story so I decided to share the story behind them for you; also my children want me to record memories and experiences before I decide to move on into the next world and next life of adventures

The background to the story being that aged twenty I was serving in the army in South Vietnam where I was located in Phuoc Tuy province and in many areas over a period of time with the Australian Army Training Team

 The pictures record one time I was serving on Lon Son Island a small island off South Vietnam

I and a few of the Vietnamese soldiers were given the task of

        What Tags are you using, I don’t see any? They make a huge difference because it puts you into more categories of the Reader – hence – more viewers.

          Hi gp, I’m not clued up on tags, I do notice that after I post my blog, a side box comes up suggesting tags, I click on them and then click off, I don’t know where they go to, other times I write something in the box and again hope it goes somewhere.

            For your Nam pix, I would suggest : Vietnam, Veteran, Army, Military, up to about 8-10, too many and it seems none of them appear) An area for this should be at the bottom or side of the ‘new post’ area (depending where you stat from, I always go to my dashboard first) You can see the Tags WP could see at the very bottom of your post – before the comments. If you go to the Reader you will see blogs You follow, including your own. If you type in a topic, the blogs that tagged that word will appear.

            Checking it out now gp, in the past the tags show up on the side of a new post after its published, will try another post and see where tags are appearing, I cant see the sense in adding tags after its posted, thanks for the advice and tips mate.
