Special Forces in Taiwan

Taiwan Scott sent me this photo, along with a page from the 1972 American newspaper in which the photo appeared.

"GREEN BERETS IN TAIWAN -- U.S. Army Special Forces "A Team" poses in front of a Chinese temple in a village in southern Taiwan recently.  The Okinawa-based Green Berets came to Taiwan for a joint Chinese-U.S. disaster relief exercise in a remote mountain valley on the island.  Green Beret veterans from Vietnam have built bridges and laid water lines in cooperation with Nationalist Chinese troops."

This photo was probably taken on the same day as the above photo.

The second photo was taken at Chuko Village, Fanlu Township, Chiayi County(嘉義縣番路鄉觸口村) on March 26, 1972. The U.S. soldier in the photo was sending a banner with words "One Family, Force and People(軍民一家)" to a local resident.
