DOOR GUNNER - Pen and Ink - James Pollock - US Army Vietnam CAT IV (1967) - Courtesy of the National Museum of the U.S. Army
Door Gunners had a dangerous job in Vietnam. On my visit with the 196th LIB, I flew on an aerial recon. Two officers sat on the floor of the helicopter reading maps and looking out the open door as they radioed ground units. While this was going on I got a chance to look over the shoulder of the Door Gunner which influenced me to do this pen and ink drawing.
