Major Derald Smith's Photo Page

Derald Smith was in the 174th AHC, 1st Platoon, from October 1966 to April 1967. He then went to the headquarters staff as Assistant S-3 (Operations) of the 14th Combat Aviation Battalion (CAB) in Chu Lai.

Webmaster note: As these photos cover both 1966 and 1967, I'm listing them below in somewhat chronological order and linking to this page from both the 1966 and 1967 history/photos pages.
