The Palette and the Page in Elkton, Maryland, currently has on display the results of collaborations of artists of different disciplines. Among them are a photo of the army combat camouflage boots I wore when I was providing signals intelligence support to units in combat all over South Vietnam. On all those missions, I was under cover as an enlisted member of the unit I was supporting and dressed in fatigues to make me indistinguishable from the troops. As far as I know, the North Vietnamese never discovered that they had a spy in their midst on the battlefield.

Patti, one of the owners of the Palette and the Page, has posted that photo on Facebook. You can see it and read her commentary at
