My 1st camera was a Kodak Retina IIIc with

55mm lens

Fifty-four years of taking pictures. . .

 

It all began out of utter boredom. I was on temporary

duty in Newfoundland, flush with money making

$222 a month! I was unable to drink it all up so I

bought a good camera .

And the rest, as they say, is history .

I carried that camera and it’s replacement for the

next 21 years behind the  Iron Curtain, in combat

over the Ho Chi Minh trail, and 48 countries

along the way .

 

 

Proudly serving our country!
