The Eyes of War

The Eyes of War:

A United States Army Photo Unit in Vietnam

 

A Presentation by Fred Blumlein, Trustee

Have you ever wondered how US Army combat photographers operated in Vietnam? Fred Blumlein, trustee of the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society and a former US Army officer who led a photo unit in Vietnam, told us about the complexity of taking and processing photographs under the extreme conditions of war.

His presentation covered:

 • His path to Vietnam
 • His unit’s geographic area of responsibilities in Vietnam
 • The airborne brigade and infantry divisions it supported
 • Its outdated facilities and equipment
 • Its photographic assignments – from the frightening to the mundane
 • The unit’s anonymous and brave photographers and lab technicians
 • Plus Blumlein’s other responsibilities, both tragic and uplifting

 

This program was sponsored by the North Riding Chapter NSDAR of Manhasset and is for audiences of 18+ years.
