Bob Cutts ©Stars and StripesDi An, South Vietnam, October, 1968: Soldiers in the field need dental care, too, and during the Vietnam war that often took some doing. Here, Capt. Earle Yeamans, a dentist with the 1st Infantry Division, works on a soldier's teeth at a Big Red One defensive perimeter as Spec. 5 Richard Ackley, left, helps out. In the background, troops waiting their turn offer protection against the dangers of a war zone.
