1st Brigade, 101st Airborne

I got to 1st Brigade 101st HQ PIO office in August 1967... My first assignment's were both 1st & 2nd 327th line companies in Chu Lai...I meet with the CO of Tiger's & wanted to hook up with them but at first they were very reluctant, they had not taken a PIO guy out before for... I told them that I had gone thru Raider School @ Bragg with the 82nd & could hold my own so they gave me a shot...I worked Tigers & A,B, & C companies 1st 327th thru the rest of the year & most of 1968. I then spent time with the line companies & Hawk Recon 2nd 327th for the rest of the year... 


The entire time my MOS was 11F Recon with a secondary of 84B (Combat Photographer). We generally worked as a writer/photographer team but most of the time I was on my own....I was very privileged to have had my work published in the Screaming Eagle, the 101st annual tour magazines, Stars & Strips, major US newspapers as well as the New York Times..... Today you will see my shots at both Brigade HQ & HQ 1st 327th at Ft Campbell KY on their wall of Honor, in their war & trophy room & at the new Tiger Force Barracks.
