Good day and thank you to all who served. I know this is far fetched, but I'm hoping to find someone who may have some Vietnam war-time photos of Hugh "Tommy" Huffstetler. Tommy was my wife's father, whom she never got the opportunity to meet. Until a little over a year ago, she had never seen a picture of him. Technology has allowed for us to learn more, but I am still in search of a photo of him in Vietnam for his shadow box. Tommy was assigned to the 23rd Infantry division, 11th infantry regiment state-side. He deployed with the 1st Infantry division, 2nd battalion, 16th infantry regiment to Vietnam from July of 1969 to July of 1970. Any help or guidance would be appreciated. God bless. ...
