While in Vietnam, I was simply a photographer, and shot bunches of photos, a lot of them being the carnage of battle. A lot of the stuff was strictly “documentation for posterity”. Some of my pix have even been published with the credit line reading “U.S. Army Photograph”. And a lot of my pix I shot while working at Kennedy Space Center, have wound up in books, with the credit line, “NASA Photograph”. While these “snubs” don’t really bother me, I would just as soon avoid going back to a combat zone, and seeing U.S. military guys being wounded. THAT does bother me.

In the middle of a desert in a faraway land they risk their lives to save US soldiers, local nationals, and even wounded insurgents. One of the hardest embeds I’ve ever done, and I’m grateful to have met and worked with the folks out there.

Our son is a critical nurse there and since traditional media is choosing not to cover the war you are one of the ways we can get a glimpse of what is happening where are loved one is.
