Which cigarette brands were used by GIs in the Vietnam war?

0

All brands of cigarettes were available in Vietnam although, for some reason, menthol brands were sometimes in short supply. In the early part of the war C rations left over from WW2 were distributed to the troops. Included with the C rations was a package that would contain a variety of items, including cigarettes. I remember smoking Lucky Strikes that were manufactured before I was born. The familiar red circle was wartime green – I believe because the red dye was needed for other wartime uses.
