I served "I" Corps Bridge detail as a USMC Military Police stationed at Camp Tiensha in November 1966. The first image is of Premier Ngyun Cao Ky crossing in the Mercedes, my QC partner waving him through. The second is Post #4 looking east. You can clearly see the pontoon brige the Seabees installed. The third is of me with a young friend. - Jack Stanfill
Thanks for this great site! On Aug. 23, '68 I was at Cam Le bridge with 1st. Plt. E co. 2/27. I was a Corpsman. We road 3 tanks up from LZ412 to reinforce A 1/27. My 1st PH that day. Hear s my account of that day. 1stmp.org/cam_le_.htm I think you have a link post on one page.
Semper Fi! Welcome home
the AN/PVS-1 Starlight scope did not "amplify" the light at night time. the number of photons that entered were directly proportionate to the number exiting. The multi-alkaline photocathode (photon to electron converter) had a light sensitivity that took in visible light AS WELL AS Near-IR light which is invisible to the naked eye. A different part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
