Hello

I am trying to help a student at my school find an old board game. his only description is that the cover has travel post cards on it and it says Name, Rank, Serial number.He believes it is an old war game. I know that isn't much, but with the wealth of knowledge in this community, I am hoping someone can help.

Any idea approximately how old it might be? Narrowing it down to a decade or two would help.

Best I can come up so far is The Fall of South Vietnam. It doesn't say "name, rank, and serial number" and those aren't postcards, however.

I've seen that before... I think there were 2 games inside it. Let me see if I can remember which ones.

i don't think thats a game box.. I think its a vintage GI Joe footlocker from the 1960's/70's. When GI Joe was a full size 12" action figure/doll. It loooks like someone placed all those stickers on the box afterward..

2003 is "old" cry

But I suppose if you're sixteen, eighteen, 12 years ago is a long time.
