Bob Hillerby

69th Signal Battalion

Photo Detachment "A"


Bob Hillerby may be typical of the soldier with a photography specialty who never was directly assigned to Army Pictorial Center but served with other units.


Hillerby wrote, "After completing photography school at Ft. Monmouth, I was assigned to the 69th Signal Battalion in Vietnam, September 1966. About a month or two in Saigon, I was transferred to Photo Detachment "A" at An Khe and spent the remainder of my tour there.


"I was a Combat Photographer (84B20 Still Photographic Specialist) and worked in that capacity throughout my time in Vietnam."
