The Pictures selected are forty-four years old. These are the ones that survived many moves and even a house fire! I have restored them the best I could.

This book is more to show the humane aspect of a very difficult situation that as very young people, men and women were thrust into. Once there, most of us decided to make the most of it. Not that we didn’t face many days and nights in fierce combat. It’s just that I didn’t stop firing my weapon to take pictures. Too busy trying to stay among the living. The liberal media at the time of the Vietnam War would have everyone believe that we were nothing more than blood thirsty thugs, baby killers, rapists and murderers. This could not be further from the truth as these pictures will try to show. I served in 3rd platoon, Charlie Company, 6th of the 31st, 9th Infantry Division from October 1968 through August 1969…
