I was a B-52 bomb loader for the 3rd Munitions Maintenance Squadron at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, during the Vietnam Conflict. When I arrived on the island in 1966 I was 21 years old. During my 18 month tour of duty I took more than 300 photographs, most of them with a Nikkormat FT 35mm SLR.
It has been 45 years since I left Guam, and I have never forgotten the island's breathtaking beauty and the many adventures I had there. I hope you enjoy these pictures.
For the last few years I have been updating this 15 year old site with new scans of the original 50 photos plus many new ones.
You can see everything here by successively clicking the "Next Page" links at the upper right.
Short descriptions of each photo will be visible at the top left of most browsers, or by hovering the cursor over the photos in Internet Explorer. Recently added pictures also have captions below them.
