    Default Rudy Boesch carrying a T223

    While watching the 2020 Frogman Down Memorial Toast, I noticed a Vietnam War era photo of Rudy Boesch carrying a T223 (thanks for the correction, Tony), and had to share. Pictures below...

    If you're not familiar with Rudy, take a look at his Wikipedia Page
    He served 45 years in the US Navy, including two tours in Vietnam while a member of Seal Team II. At the time of his retirement in 1990 he was a Command Master Chief Petty Officer and the "Bullfrog", as the longest serving SEAL on active duty.


    The Frogman Down Memorial Toast is an annual multi-city event held around Memorial Day to honor fallen Frogmen.

    2020 Frogman Down — Memorial Toast on May 24, 2020

    That's the best pic I've seen yet of a Vietnam era SEAL with the HK33.

    I dig that slimline foregrip.

    Anybody make those?
