ENVELOPE TEXT: Vietnam - Parachutes - air drop at Khe Sanh - high scanned (not clean).
NOTES ON CONTACT SHEET: March 2 - Photos of Khe Sanh by Bob Handy, OW freelancer - All the pictures show Air Force C130s making drops of C rations, ammo and other vital supplies. Airlift is the only means supplying Khe Sanh now and the enemy has virtually closed down the airstrip with huge volumes of anti-aircraft fire. When the weather permits, a few choppers get in. The C130s land occasionally, when the weather and enemy fire permit. If they land, the 130s shove pallets of cargo and people out the huge back door, yank on any passengers who want to get out, and take off again, all literally within seconds. They can be airborne again within a minute or two. They never shut off engines. There's a story going around, which may be apocryphal but illustrates the kind of things that can happen at Khe Sanh. Allegedly an Air Force pilot was deadheading (riding as a check pilot or in some other function but not a member of the crew) on one of the 130s that landed at Khe Sanh. He helped the crew shove out the cargo and then was trying to pull on a passenger. The plane was already starting its take off roll and the man on the ground was heavy. He pulled the pilot out of the plane instead of the pilot pulling him on. The pilot raced back for the 130 and hung onto the back door for about 15 yards but had to turn loose. The plane took off without him and he's allegedly still stuck in Khe Sanh. (This paragraph comes from a story I heard here, not from Handy). 1st Lt Bryan Traynor has the job of getting the pallates of ammo and C rats from the drop zone, which is outside the perimeter at Khe Sanh, down to the various units and supply depots inside the base. It's a hairy job since it has to be done under the almost constant heavy artillery fire raining on Khe Sanh base. (Unfortunately, there's no picture of Traynor here). There are an average of 10 airdrops a day at Khe Sanh. (1-2) Show cargo chutes dropping out of tail of 130 over Khe Sanh. (6-7) Show 130 landing in the battered Khe Sanh base. (3) Cargo chutes land in perimeter wire. They set off a trip flare--a dangerous situation since the three pallets had 105 ammo on them. (4-5) Cargo pallettes kick up dust as they land. These also are pallettes which set off flare. Quote from Handy in his note from Khe Sanh: "I hope this is enough information. I could have managed more facts and figures but due to the goddamn steady incoming it's pretty hard to move about." Handy is inexperienced but sometimes comes up with good pictures. He intended this as a photo story but it's not. Think you could be able to get a couple of wild photos out of them. Ann.

NOTES ON CONTACT SHEET: Saigon - Pulling guard outside a Saigon billet can be pretty dull work, though there are compensations - like watching pretty girls in ao dais. Even so, it is eight hours of not doing much except keeping awake and alert. But a guy does the best he can, like 21 year old Speedy 4 John Boyce of the 716th Mp Bn. This Tremont, Utah, GI decided the guard post outside the Rex BOQ and club could be brightened up a bit. So he stuck an orchid into a hole in a sandbag. Not that the post is always a pretty job. On the morning of June 19, a North Vietnamese 122mm rocket landed only 25 yards from the post. The man on duty -- not Boyce -- was uninjured. But, anyway, would you believe flower power? 22: Corporal Oakla Spence, N.C.O. of the 3rd Marine boat section at Dong Ha at the helm of a skimmer boat on the Coa Viet River. 25, 26: same. 30, 31: The 3rd Marine boat section from left: L/C V.E.

NOTES ON CONTACT SHEET: Dan Derby, c/o JUSPAO Press Mission, APO San Francisco 96243 - Special to Overseas Weekly - Extended Photo Caption Vinh Long Flood Pictures - MONSOON MADNESS has struck at Vinh Long Airbase in the northern delta. Someone didn't take into account the rains when a floating dredge went to work and fouled up the drainage pattern on the base. Now offices and hootches are under six to twelve inches of water. "This never happened before they started messing around with that dredge," said one trooper. Another resident described the base as a floating cesspool, explaining that the latrines were under water. "It's like sleeping in a septic tank." One chopper pilot convalescing from a back injury told this story: "I managed to get the stench of the water down by spraying the hootch with disinfectant and got my mind off of the mess by turning on the TV, then a damned frog hopped up on my leg. I grabbed my crutches and sloshed over to the airfield headquarters and told the sergeant major that if that dredge was operating in the morning I'd get my old chopper and sink it!" The waters are receding.

Visitors do not enter house until invited by head of household. When visitors do enter, protocol calls for sips of rice wine from a huge vase.

Montagnard villages are a form of communism, with all property belonging to village as a whole and none to an individual. Plots are allotted to families according to their rank and family wealth.

The poorer a man is, the farther he has to walk to his fields and the fewer fields he has. 14: A herd of Montagnard ducks in foreground, a mama-san and her son taking a bath in the middle of a tribal cemetary in the background. 15: A herd of ducks. 16: ??? 17, 18: Vietnamese and montagnard children attend the schools in hamlet A, the only village in Vietnam were Vietnamese and Montagnards live and work side-by-side and send their kids to the same schools.

The stage is a small raised platform in dark wood, with a movie screen behind it. When the screen is not in use a silent-film still picture is mounted on it. Caption: the brass at BOQ 1 has created for themselves one of the most luxurious clubs in Vietnam, the Club Car. Modeled after a railway car the club stands on the second floor of the officers mess -- HIGH class. "You get to this place and you forget where you're at," said one Lite Colonel. Junior officers are welcome to go there to drink and forget, too.
