Military Snapshot: Marines of Fox/2/5 Advance in Hue City

During Fox/2/5's advance toward Ly Thuong Kiet Street from Highway 1, they were accompanied by a Marine flame tank affectionately known as "Zippo." In the photo above, Zippo unleashes a stream of flame at one of the buildings on the block of Tran Cao Van as Fox/2/5 machine gunners look on.
