Saigon / Hon Tre (1969-70)

After completing his military service, Rick continued to work as a news correspondent in the Far East and South-East Asia so some of

these photos were taken after the Vietnam War ended.

Rick after Boot Camp and after he had arrived at DINFOS for Advanced Training

He wrote:  On this date, I entered the Marine Corps. Seen here at my first assignment after boot camp: broadcasting school (DINFOS) in Indianapolis (1968).  Marines never forget the day their lives changed forever on arrival for basic training.  I don't look like a trained killer.
