Photo Essay


The Mountain

Back in the late 60's or early 70's a unit from the U.S. Army was training here at Seneca Rocks, West Virginia.

Somewhere up on the mountain a soldier has fallen and is in need of immediate help.

A call goes out from the base camp for assistance.

Soon an Army helicopter arrives to transport the injured soldier to a hospital.

It takes a while but the medics bring the injured soldier off of the mountain.

He is soon loaded into the chopper and is ready to be on the way.

They are off the ground and he is rapidly taken to a hospital where the doctors are waiting for him.

    Somehow the information part of the story didn't come out. This series of photos was taken by me sometime in the late 60's or early 70's. I did my best to restore the photos but the color was a bit faded.
