Phill Coleman (more photos). Phill Coleman portrait by Andre Rivard at US Army Base Bien Hoa, Vietnam 1970. From a roll of Kodak Tri-x developed and printed at the 269th Signal Support camera club dark room. There was never enough time for me to utilize that facility, with our 12 hour work days at the Comm Center.-- Andri Rivard.


Personal note by Phill Coleman: 19 years old, 6'2", 160 pounds. Not a lot of food in the Army where the cooks were the best fed. And what the Stateside cooks didn't steal to give to their families, and didn't steal in Vietnam to give to their girlfriend's families, was meagerly parceled out in 1-plate-only Spartan rations to the troops. Since the Revolutionary War the biggest theft in the history of the United States has been food stolen by the military food providers, if not the military food suppliers... and it goes on to this day.
