Vietnam, a look back: Part II

Private First Class Michael Petersen takes a moment for a photo at his main operating base in Can Tho Army Airfield, Vietnam in 1969. Petersen served in the Army during the Vietnam War and was assigned to the 156th Aviation Company, where he oversaw the maintenance of 17 U-6 Beavers, which were fixed wing, radial engine propeller aircraft. After serving in the Army, Petersen later transitioned to the Air Force Reserve in 1977, where he went on to serve 29 additional years and retired as the command chief master sergeant for the 315th Airlift Wing at Joint Base Charleston, S.C. Today, Petersen serves as the director of Equal Opportunity at JB Charleston as a government employee. (Courtesy Photo)
