A small puppy yawns from the warmth inside the jacket of Sgt Richard Eney of Baltimore, MD. Eney, a member of the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division operating in the vicinity of Hue, is bundled up against the cold and drizzly weather. He bought the pup from a villager in the area and intends to take him along on his tour of duty of Vietnam.

Looking as if they were scudding over grass except for a telltale ridge of spray, American paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division rode a flat-bottomed boat through a swampy area about 10 miles northwest of Saigon. They were searching for Viet-Cong soldiers. (A.P. wirephoto, October 5, 1969)
