The 6/14 Arty is officially open but is still a work in progress. We hope that it will soon take form and someday proudly stand as a testament to the brave men of the 6th Battalion 14th Artillery Regiment.

Robert Lund says:
"I was on the Gordon ship in 1965.
I helped put the wire on artillery hill by pleiku."
Robert Lund has contacted me and said he's loading up some of his photos and is going to fire them our way as soon as he can. And we all thank you for that offer of sharing with us, Bob.
"Direct Hit Bob!"
Well, not twenty-four hours later Bob comes across with 27 fine images of his 1965 tour. That's a few to many for this page so when you finish with this page, just scroll to the bottom for the link to more photos on page two and gaze in on the Nam of '65.

We owe credit and thanks to Bill Holmes for the next six photos. Since receiving them Bill got a wild hair up his... sleeve and put them, as well as others complete with descriptions and commentaries, on a page at his site. Do check them out at Bill's Vietnam 6/14 Artillery Tour, you won't be disappointed.

Well we're in luck, one of the more prolific film hounds of the 6/14, Dennis Proulx, has dug through his warehouse of photos and started to come across with some picts. Dennis was with HHB 6/14th Feb 70 to Oct 70. He worked in the TOC just off of FSB Athena C Btry between them (C Btry) and the town of Kontum. Oct 70 he was transferred to 1st Air Cav in III Corps  War Zone D but before being transfered he took a lot of photos.
The following are just a few of what we could breach for the first round.

I received a Photo CD loaded with more great 6/14 images than there are stars in the sky. (Paaaa-trick... !) Welll... there are a lot and as soon as this goldbricker gets off his asss... sssandbag we'll pepper this page with pics.

Now the Album is beginning to get a little thicker. I'm looking forward to it 'bustin' tha seams' of this page with all the great photos that 'you' have stashed. I have been contacted by a few other gracious guys and they are getting together their photos and sending them this way. Some are photocopies, some in the form of e-mail, and some original shots too.  I'm stoked! (old surfer term for overwhelmed)  I'm just about ready to start page two for the album. (I won't be completely happy until there's about ten, or twelve, or. . .) So a big thank you in advance for sharing and let's see some more.

Many of the members of the 6/14 Arty have been gracious enough to send in their rare and irreplaceable photos for scanning and their trust is greatly appreciated. Sometimes it takes a while to get them all scanned and then return the photographs to their owners. To honor these images and repay the owners for their trust and patience, the 6/14 Arty will, to the best of our abilities, digitally reconstruct, enhance, and restore these photos to a near "as new" state dependant on the condition of the original.

The photos above have already been restored.
