The photos in Vietnam were slides taken by Ralph unless otherwise stated. Words in quotes are from Ralph's notes on a slide. After the Ammo Dump Explosions on 19 May 68 and losing everything except one pair of pants, a shirt and one pair of boots. He wrote many times how he really wished he had a camera again because he was missing a lot of good shots. We are sure glad he got his hands on another camera! There is a good possibility slides are in chronological order.

*Some slides may be duplicates given to Ralph by Larry Callahan.

The following photos were slides taken by Charles Callahan III or Larry to his family and Chuck to his army buddies. Chuck sent a description home to his parents for each slide except for the "C" slides. Chuck wrote "A" slides taken late March & April 1968 Vietnam" and "B" slides taken late April & May 1968 Vietnam". Ralph and Chuck have some duplicates so it seems they shared some slides. Slides are courtesy of Chuck's sister, Stevey Callahan.

The following photographs were taken by and courtesy of Bennie [Gene] Koon
HHC, 1st Battalion, 5th Calvary Regiment, 1st Calvary Division
26 October 1967 - 25 October 1968

1/5 participated in the Relief of Khe Sahn and were airlifted in by 227AHB and 229AHB. So it is possible that Bennie and Ralph crossed paths in a Huey! 
Ralph would of loved Bennie's camera gear!
