Ray Mahon ©Stars and StripesSouth Vietnam, October, 1965: A U.S. Marine enjoys a little shelter from the elements as he maintains radio communications atop The Rockpile, a 750-foot hill located at the junction of five valleys seven miles south of the DMZ. The Marines manned the exposed 40-by-17-foot summit outpost for weeks at a time.
