It was forbidden to take photos in this place, for some strange reason

I've heard a lot about how Dusters also mounted an M1919A4 or M60 machine gun, but I've never been able to find out where it was positioned on the vehicle. Could anyone tell me where and how it was mounted?
My boyfriend dad was on one of these Tony Nieto. He is searching for old friends he was in Vietnam with

Echo.. I'd love to get in touch with you I was a driver and TC on a Duster in 1968 -69 also down in the delta with the 9th infantry.
I actually drove, fired and was tank commander of a "Duster" in III Corp. They provided great support for convoys and perimeter security to base camps. They were a great piece of equipment and feard by the enemy due to its fire power.
one of this was driven by my dad, Richard Fradera B BATTERY 1/44TH ARTY, DONG HOA, VIETNAM 1969..PHONE 919 671 2274
