This is a picture of me right after returning from a "Sweep".

In this photo I was a Squadleader E-5. I was supposed to be supervising but usually got bored and pitched in. The Army believes you can't both work and supervise so what I was doing was against the rules.

This was one of the occasions when the "band" really was a BAND. We were providing music for a change of command ceremony for one of the 4th Inf. Div. Brigades. I can't remember the fire base we were at, probably "Highlander Heights" near Anh Khe.

Whoa! Where did my head go? This was an attempt to do a deliberate double exposure to put my picture over "Signal Hill" which was the home of the communications guys on our main base, Camp Enari.

This is me in my "cadre room". I was an E-5 Squadleader and had my own little closet size room in our barracks. The barracks had a cement floor, plywood walls half way up and screen wire the rest of the way. The roof was tin. There was a "blast wall" of sandbags about waist high around the outside. You can see my Flak Jacket, and Ammo Belt and my Helmet ready for use a chair to the right.

These were some of the guys in the band. From left to right: Dan King was a trumpet player, Frank Bearden played tuba in, and Me flutist, "Jeff" George Franklin Gore played Euphonium in the band. Photo was in his living area.
