Soldiers With Their Civet Cat And A Mortar Parachute
Cai Cai 1966. Richard H. Dick James standing 2nd from left. "We had just made our civet cat airborne qualified, using a mortar parachute off the observation tower. Sergeant First Class Allard, Staff Sergeant Conard, Sergeant Richard "Dick" James and Staff Sergeant Passmore. We got a group of four A-teams together, made a night jump at Bragg, and each team hiked to a target. We hiked (during the nighttime) to the Bragg Ammo Dump. Arrived before dawn, and reconnoitered the site. In the early dawn we cut our way through the fence/barbed wire, and snuck onto the grounds of the ammo dump. We then placed signs on each bunker, saying 'destroyed by Detachment A-42, Company D, 7th Special Forces Group.' The other three teams did the same at the base water supply and power supply, as well as the aircraft on Pope Air Force Base. The Ft. Bragg commanding general was livid, and chewed out everybody involved. It was a 'blast.' None of the teams were ever spotted." — with Richard H. Dick James. Photo by Richard H. Dick James.

Soldier Guards Route 7 as Southern Vietnamese Return Home
In this December 1965 file photo shot by Associated Press photographer Horst Faas, a U.S. 1st Division soldier guards Route 7 as Vietnamese women and school children return home to the village of Xuan Dien from Ben Cat, Vietnam
Sept. 2, 1966, Bien Hoa, Vietnam. In this 1966 photo, Berlin-born paratrooper Ruediger Richter patrols in the jungle northeast of what is now called Ho Chi Minh City as a member of the U.S. Army's 4th Battalion, 503rd Infantry, 173rd Airborne Brigade. As a boy, Richter saw bodies in the streets of Hitler's Germany, where he spent his childhood. He then became a professional killer, first as a member of the French Foreign Legion and later as a member of the U.S. Army. A gunshot through the head ended his Vietnam combat service in 1967, leaving him with a shattered face and a heart hollowed out by anger and addictions. He has since found his peace living in the rural Southern United States near Columbus, Georgia. Photo by Henri Huet KIA Feb. 10, 1971 over Laos.
