SGT Thomas Schiro immediately prior to boarding a helicopter to Lz Xray. (this
is a still extracted from the video - there is no video behind it)
There is no sound with most of the following video clips. They
have been extracted from the 16mm footage taken by SGT Jack Yamaguchi and
Thomas Schiro of a Dept of the Army Special Photographic team.
Most of the footage is of the headquarters area. You will not see any enemy, no
hand to hand fighting, no soldiers frantically firing. You will see and get an
appreciation of the battlefield as it actually was as well as see footage of
helicopters, wounded, and some of the individuals mentioned in the book.
