Larry Burrows. One Ride with Yankee Papa 13, 1965. Photo Essay.

1. “From the downed YP3 in the background, the wounded gunner, Sergeant Owens, races to Yankee Papa 13, where Farley waits in the doorway.”

2.  “Farley, unable to leave his gun position until YP13 is out of enemy range, stares in shock at YP3′s co-pilot, Lieutenant Magel, on the floor.”

3. Farley and Hoilien, dead tired, linger beside their helicopter and continue to talk over the mission.

4. In a supply shack, hands covering his face, an exhausted, worn James Farley gives way to grief.
