It was when aboard the ranger that my work was published in something other than a high school year book. Photographs I made of the first American POW to escape and be returned to the Ranger were published In the May 1967 issue of the Saturday Evening Post magazine in a story titled “I Escaped From a Red Prison”. Years later a movie was made about his capture and escape. The Photographs may not have been great, but I was the only photographer that got any. A 35 mm camera earned no respect then because the top of the line Nikon was less than $200.00 and everyone had one, or one of the other top brands. I used a 4x5 inch Speed Graphic With flash bulbs the size of light bulbs
