Vietnam 1970-71

8mm video of Camp Evans and the AO (courtesy Robert "Frenchy" Vial)

Frenchy's video is a collection of short clips from around Camp Evans and the general AO in circa 1970-71.

There is unfortunately no audio, but just having a hand-held 8mm camera in those days was quite remarkable!

The entire video is just over 24 minutes. The first 19 minutes are mostly scenes of Phoenix birds in the Nest and on various missions, shot from Frenchy's perch in the crew chief's seat. Some scenes from an R&R in Sydney are also included.

The last 5 minutes are from his Freedom Bird and homecoming in Louisiana's Cajun country.
