Vietnam 1967

These are some of the pictures  I took when I served with the United States Army's 4th Division whose main base was Camp Enari located near Pleiku, Vietnam in the central highlands. I was a military reporter/photographer and operated the Public Information Offices photo lab for much of my tour. As such, I spent time wherever the 4th Division had a presence, from Dak To to Cam Rahn Bay. Browse the images below.
