About the Cover

An American soldier reading a letter from home, Lang Vei, South Vietnam, 1971

Photojournalist David Burnett ’68 has been searching for some of the soldiers he photographed in Vietnam, such as this man he thought he’d found (family name Timmons) but now isn’t sure. It’s been a hard task because, as Burnett says, not only could he use a couple of research assistants, but also “I was such a terrible journalist. … I never got anybody’s name. I admired the newspaper and wire service people because they knew that their pictures wouldn’t get used if they didn’t have a name. . . . And you know what? Bless their hearts for doing it because if accuracy in media were only as good as me, we’d all be in trouble.”
