Steve “Frenchy” Pelletier cleans one M-79 grenade launcher while another M-79 leans against a roll of matting at left. We used the ammo box at Frenchy’s right knee to store our weapons cleaning gear. We didn’t carry this box on night operations. Every morning we sent a couple of guys to retrieve the box from wherever we stashed it the night before. That looks like a PRC-25 battery just left of the cleaning gear.
