Auzzie females in Vietnam?
Stumbled upon this picture of a padre administering last rights, you can see under the arrow a hair barret and to the left an Auzzie or NZ bush hat.  A female soldier in Vietnam?

RE: Auzzie females in Vietnam?
Chaplain John McNamara of Boston makes the sign of the cross as he administers the last rites to photographer Dickey Chapelle in South Vietnam Nov. 4, 1965. Chapelle was covering a U.S. Marine unit on a combat operation near Chu Lai for the National Observer when she was seriously wounded, along with four Marines, by an exploding mine. She died in a helicopter en route to a hospital. She became the first female war correspondent to be killed in Vietnam, as well as the first American female reporter to be killed in action. Her body was repatriated with an honor guard consisting of six Marines and she was given full Marine burial. (AP Photo/Henri Huet)

RE: Auzzie females in Vietnam?
Why is she wearing webbing, a combat knife and ammo pouches?

Good find BTW.

Found this official photo, she was quite pretty.  Just what every 20 year old grunt away from home needs in the bush, a hot blond...pure torture.
