Mel, I remember peaceful times and people in Vietnam too. This is an excellent example of that. We often flew our medivac choppers up and down the rivers when entering or exiting one of our five medivac base camps, so we saw this type of scene often. I am glad that you brought your camera along this time, Mel. Best regards, brother!

Your accompanying description, (something you excel at, by the way) 'fills out' this wonderful photo of a different world in a different time, Mel. I teared up at the end when you said that seeing the children on the river came to represent that you might all have a good day that day. Have you ever thought of writing about that time of your life Mel? Writing is cathartic. Anyway. GREAT photograph. Thank you for posting all of these. In my favorites.

Description

( Copyright Mel Steinhauer all rights reserved ) Not far from the busy streets of Saigon, many people lived in small villages often located near a river or stream. Families were close with grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins living in the same house or in others nearby. My unit patrolled this area by night and day, but I preferred walking around in the daylight. Sometimes on these day patrols I even carried my camera and attempted to capture peaceful scenes of everyday village life. Although our squad was armed with all sorts of weaponry, curious children usually appeared to watch us go by. With smiling faces, laughter and out-stretched arms waving hello, I believed that we may all have a good day when I saw these ... Children On The River.
