Summer of 1972 — Nineteen
This picture was of me in 1972 when I was 19 years old and working as a team leader for the Neighborhood Youth Corps. I had fifteen youths in my group. They were placed in summer jobs and worked three days a week. The other two days were activities which I had to plan and do. It was quite a challenging job.
The average age of the US soldier in Vietnam was 19….19….19… The Vietnam War was raging when I was 19.
