Snapshots of infantry life
Dan Millea’s mother gave him a camera when he was in the Vietnam War. He’d take pictures and then send the film back stateside and when the pictures returned to him, he’d write a little story on the back. Here are his stories.
The photo above is of Millea.
A quick note on one of the references: “Mountainyard” is the term for a person who lived in the hills near Pleiku, where Millea’s unit was stationed.
