Summary May 1971
To be Written
One of C 2/5 Cav's troopers was an extremely talented artist. Dated May 1, 1971, this sketch of Commanding Officer CPT Vic Aliffi awaiting the read-out of a Pink Team recon is well done. Dolf Carlson found these (and another sketch on the August 1971 page) in his souvenirs. He wrote in his email:
I think they are very good, and as the years have gone on, I think that they are even better. It would be interesting to find out what happened to the SkyTrooper who did them.

The detail of this drawing is superb - titled "A Light to Fight", and dated May 26th, it depicts the small amount of gear a trooper would carry into a firefight. (Note: His sketch titled "Heavy to Hump" is shown on the August 1971 page.)
Anyone knowing the identity of the artist, please notify the Webmaster.
James Marshall contributed this photo of a medic, pad and pencil in hand, who may have been the artist. The photo was taken at Xuan Loc sometime in 1970. If you can identify this medic, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
