Soldiers from Victor 4 Company pictured below Dinh Co monastery. The monastery was situated on top of a hill and used by the New Zealanders as a command post. Noel Bell took this photograph on 19 July 1969 - the day it was broadcast that US astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin Jr were about to walk on the moon.

If you think I'm pedantic over the correct spelling of items then check out controversy surrounding the title of Deborah Challinors book "Grey Ghosts".

I'll try and send a link to the discussion from one of the Viet Nam vets nets.
