A rare beer at boot camp

A young Thai Marine gets the rare chance to drink a beer during boot camp. I think the camp's name was Samae San.


I can't remember for the life of me how he got that beer. I don't think I gave it to him, but I might be wrong. In any case, Thai Marines are some of the most disciplined forces in the world. Straight out of boot camp, they are expected to be able to conduct live ammo patrols along the Cambodian border. In some instances, they are forced to engage an enemy.


Taken in 1990 with a Minolta X-370, 50mm prime lens, and Kodak Gold 100 film.
