'A snapshot of the U.S.A.' (copy)

“July 4, 1970, I asked three men in the bunker next to mine to pose for a photograph,” amateur photographer and Huntington Vietnam Veteran Archie Lintz said. “I have kept the photo for 50 years by this Independence Day, July 4, 2020.”

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, but local Vietnam Veteran Archie Lintz has held onto a photo he took on Independence Day 1970 at Quang Tri Combat Base that has been dubbed a ‘snapshot of the U.S.A.’

It was July 4, 1970 when Lintz asked three men in the bunker next to his to pose for a photograph. It was one of twelve he took after he was drafted to serve in the Vietnam War in 1968.
