I was in the Army for almost 3 years. It sure seemed a lot longer. Being a picture taker, I got quite a few pictures of the different phases of my military life - Basic Training (right after); School of Music in Norfolk, Virginia; 433rd Army Band at Fort Irwin, California; a trip to Washington DC in the summer of 1968; and my tour of duty in Vietnam. While in Vietnam, I took pictures of my surroundings - the people and the places. I shot in black and white and also took a lot of color slides. There are pictures of my R&R to Japan in the spring of 1970.
