Two good things about my Christmas spent in Vietnam in 1966: When any of us received a care package from home we shared and I didn’t have to shovel snow. Phila., my home town, had a massive snowstorm on Christmas Eve that year. We, on the other hand worried about sunburn (among other things).
Here’s a shot of three of the guys in our outfit digging into a Christmas care package someone received from home. Did I mention that we always shared? I converted this scan from an old color slide because I prefer the B&W version.
Merry Christmas to all and please share. Speaking of sharing, I added a new tab to the Aware Writer this evening — Photo Books — where you can download a free copy of Saigon 1966: Volume One – Black & White, the ebook version (pdf).
