Pete McAskill

This photo was taken in June 2001 in Lexington, MA.

"I was standing in front of a panel of the Vietnam Wall looking at the name of an A-1 Skyraider pilot, Paul T. McCllan. His plane was shot down during the I-Drang valley battle in 1965. The I-Drang Valley was the first major battle in Vietnam in which over 300 Army soldiers were killed."

"As I was looking at his name, there was a tap on my shoulder. I turned and saw a women with cameras around her neck. She is a photojournalist for a local news paper. She asked if she could interview me. I said that was OK. Later she sent me this photo." Pete McAskill, 6th SOS
