Good pics pipedreams. The one that really got to me from that was the poor little girl running naked after a napalm strike. Poor child was in agony. She emigrated here later. She is the same age as my younger sister.

Catherine Leroy led an interesting life 1945 – 2006.

"In 1968, during the Tet Offensive, Leroy was captured by the North Vietnamese Army. She managed to talk her way out and emerged as the first newsperson to take photographs of North Vietnamese Army Regulars behind their own lines. The subsequent story made the cover of Life.[9]"
