North Vietnamese Army NLF Ho Chi Minh Trail Infiltration Certification Receipt Unit 6816
Very Good Condition
This is an NVA blank receipt for a soldier to document distance traveled while infiltrating from the North to the South. We know this is an infiltration document as it bears a unit 6816 rubber stamp. Unit 6410 is an encoded identifier for an NVA unit going South.
This type of material was invaluable to the intelligence community to document the movement of units or for use during interogation of a POW. At some point they are no longer actionable and could be kept by an Intel type. The average grunt would be required to turn such S-2 documents into his unit command.
