Da Nang, South Vietnam, December 12, 1970: Actor Fess Parker, TV's "Davy Crockett," helps unload Christmas trees, turkeys and other gifts bound for troops in five areas of the war zone in Vietnam. But the biggest gift of all for 183 lucky servicemembers came a few days later, when they boarded the plane that brought the shipment and returned stateside for holiday leave.
