I doubt if you'll get many responses here, but a google search for "drugs, Vietnam & US Army" got about 600,000 hits, so you can probably find the info you want. Same search procedure will probably work for gear & weight. Just as drug use increased in the US during the 1960s & 70s, the same happened in Vietnam. It wasn't prevalent when/where I was there (1966/67, Cam Ranh Bay Air Base), but probably was elsewhere, at that time.
