Presentation Transcript
  • Random views of a unit, chiefly B/2-327th (Abn) Inf, its activities, areas of operation, and most importantly, its soldiers. Included as well are glimpses of a people and country we were trying to help.
  • This collection of photos may give the viewer the impression that 1st Bde troopers spent considerable care-free time in base camp, stand-down, at the beach, with tents, cold drinks, clean uniforms, normal personal hygiene and hot meals.
  • This incorrect impression results from the virtual impossibility of taking photographs while engaged in ground combat.
  • The photographs generally follow the progress of the 1st Brigade northward from Phan Rang, through “middle” and “northern” areas of operation in the Central Highlands to southern I Corps. By Christmas of 1967 the Brigade had returned south to Bao Loc west of Phan Rang. The photos record selected events occurring from January 1967 to early January 1968.
