Dolphin Combat Assault Into Laos

"Going Over The Fence Feb. 1971"

Abe says: "I was the camera driver on the first leg of this insertion (kidding). We had just left the PZ with a cabin full of South Vietnamese and were minutes away from the LZ in Laos. All hell broke lose right after this photo. Its funny how I was calm enough to be taking this photo and in minutes it changed to stark terror!"

Abe was Crewchief on board his slick- "The Frito Bandito"
