Military Yearbook: Take Five

Photo of soldier in Vietnam taken by John Del Vecchio.

Vietnam, circa 1971. 

On average, a soldier’s pack weighed 90-100 pounds. Add to that the 38 pound PRC-25 radio this soldier has mounted to the bottom of his pack and it’s no wonder he’s stopped for a rest.

Photo taken by John Del Vecchio, author of The 13th ValleyCarry Me Home and For The Sake Of All Living Things. Watch more from Del Vecchio in this video:
