my military unit

During my military term, I was with the headquarters of the ARVN 10th Politic Warefare Battalion, based at No. 2 Thanh Son St, Danang, Vietnam. My official responsibility was in charge of the battalion's photographic darkroom. When at home base, my weapon was a Topcon RE Super camera and the uniform was "Olive Drab" the color olive shaded green that was standard fighting uniform for U.S. GIs and tanks during World War II through Vietnam War.

Since I was assisgned as military reporter/photographer to cover the war, I had been authozired
to wear the camouflage uniform specially assigned to the military branch that I worked with,
to enter all military airports and using any available air transport,
and to be exempted from military curfew.
