    Just looking at this. My dad was a crew chief for this helicopter squadron during the time these pictures were taken. Larry Burrows actually gave him a camera and my dad took hundreds of similar pictures of his time in Vietnam. I tried to get my dad to do a homemade documentary with the pictures but he could not stand to look at them that long. I always told him that would be a part of history for his grandkids and he would say “I hope they never see anything like this”.
