Vietnam War 68-69



This is where I started my lifelong love of photography. For the first half of my tour, as an Architect, I designed and supervised construction projects. Then I discovered photography! For the second half of my tour, I was a "Combat Photographer". A few of these images were taken by another combat photographer whose name I cannot recall. These photos have been in storage for 35 years. I have some negatives that I have scanned. For other shots, all I have are prints. I also have a few slides that have mold on them. All were developed and printed using water that one can only describe as wet. A glass of it was brown and barely clear. If you think this Gallery has merit, please vote so others may see it.
