Blood Chit - a notice carried by military personnel and addressed to any civilians who may come across an armed-services member – such as a shot-down pilot – in difficulties. As well as identifying the force to which the bearer belongs as friendly, the notice displays a message requesting that the service member be rendered every assistance. These were printed on silk in 14 languages. To be used if you were shot down in hostile territory. A sort of military "Get Out Of Jail Free" card.
"My DFC (Distinguished Flying Cross). I hated troops that abused the Vietnamese people. They were dumb scumbags. I beat a LT. with a bar stool who was being pushy with a girl in Saigon. Then the local police locked him up and, I never paid for a drink in the place." -Tom Everhart. Photo by Tom Everhart.
