The 25th was the first Army unit I supported. They were like the 10th MTN of Afghaniland. Some great photos.

These are very valuable historical images. We've lost too many historical images from Vietnam. Sadly, a lot of the color film used during the Vietnam era was Ektachrome, which doesn't last. In contrast, early Kodachrome taken before and during World War II will last forever. Even then, however, if a veteran's family isn't interested, a valuable color slide or snapshot or photo album can easily be lost.
