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.
Dig down into that old footlocker or box that you stashed in the attic, get out those photos
and share them with us. There are a lot of folks that would like to see them.

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.
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.
