This collection from previous photograph negatives was taken in the late 1960s by my brother Jim when he was serving one in every of his two tours of duty in Vietnam. Obviously he had some of his conflict buddies snap some photographs of him in that setting additionally. I never noticed these photos in an album and till not too long ago these negatives sat in an previous shoebox on one in every of my mom’s closet shelves in our dwelling. My brother died when he was only 35 years of age and his massive injuries which impaired the balance of his life occurred while he was nonetheless in the army but not Vietnam. He was injured in a helicopter crash at Fort Hood, Texas and was certainly one of few survivors with most of the younger males in that collision being killed at that site. So known as warfare games have been being carried out and the Secretary of Defense was there in response to my memory. Despite the actual fact of it being horrendous weather with tornadoes being sighted in the area the exercise commenced. At 200 feet up in the air with just about zero visibility two helicopters collided and fell like rocks to the earth.
