The Vietnam War was my defining moment. I spent 4 years in the Marines and finally in December 1968 I was in Vietnam. I was only there for 5 months and didn’t see combat. What I did do was spend every possible day out in the county around DaNang, Vietnam. You can see what I accomplished here: Another Vietnam Story.
I was one of the lucky ones. I came back alive and physically unharmed.
Here is a web show of photography from the Vietnam War. It includes civilian and military photographers, including Marine Corp photographers. Also note that were the military photographer is known they are given credit for their work. This is a rarity. In fact I have never seen military photographers ever get name credit for their images.
