Viet Nam Photo Collection
I served in the U.S. Army in Viet Nam from March 1968 to
- During my first year, I lived in a regular Army
Signal Corps unit (Company A/44, 36th Signal Battalion, 1st Signal Brigade,
USARV - US ARmy Vietnam ) at Bien Hoa Army Base and was
was a "professional amateur radio operator" in the Army MARS (Military Amateur
Radio System) program.
- During the next 6 months, I was in a MACV
(Military Assistance Command Vietnam) advisor company in the town of Ba Ria,
Phouc Tuy province about 30 miles north of the resort city of Vung Tau.
- During my final 6 months, I was with AFVN (American
Forces Vietnam Network) radio-TV and spent time in Saigon, Da Nang and on Hon
Tre (an island off the coast of the central coast resort city of Nha Trang).
These are some of the over 3,000 pictures I took during
my time there. The originals are mostly Kodachrome slides.
They have been converted to digital form with a Nikon Coolscan LS-5000 film scanner.
