South Vietnam, April, 1967: Capt. Thomas B. Mannix of B Company, 27th Infantry, 25th Infantry Division, center, uses a pair of radios to direct orbiting helicopters into position during a mission to round up suspected Viet Cong who were fleeing from interrogators in Hau Nghai Province. At left is Spec. 4 Thomas J. Alway; at right is Spec. 4 Mike Wells. Once the suspects were rounded up, they weren't freed unless they matched the descriptions on their ID cards. Failing that, they were taken to district headquarters.
