I received the following message from Alice Manning Bowers, sister of "Doc" Manning, and I think it should be shared with all of
those that knew Bob "Doc" Manning in Viet Nam.

Brett Barham was one of the 1st Echo Company troopers when it was formed in mid 1968.
We have been asked by a free lance photographer that spent time with the Jumping Mustangs in Vietnam
to help identify the trooper in the picture to the left. Click on the picture to see a larger size of it. It will
open in a new page. Close the page to return here. He is having a photo exhibit for the 54th Anniversary of
the VN War and would like to have this picture as his center piece. His name is Robert Hodierne and his
email address is email@example.com and his website page about SGT Rock is
www.hodierne.com/rock.htm. He would like to know the troopers name. Please contact Robert if you
know who the trooper is. Here is a link to the page of "C" 1/8th Cav burning a Vil after being ambushed
the day before. The trooper is in the pictures.
