photo taken from, Another Vietnam: unseen images of the war from the winning side. 

Standing hip deep in swamp-water, saving lives under such conditions. As a nurse this deeply moved me. The caption reads:

Sept. 15, 1970

A victim of American bombing, ethnic Cambodian guerrilla Danh Son Huol is carried to an improvised operating room in a mangrove swamp on the Ca Mau Peninsula. This scene was an actual medical situation, not a publicity setup. The photographer, however, considered the image unexceptional and never printed it.
