I took this picture of General William C. Westmoreland at NSA Station Hospital, Da Nang, Vietnam. From 1964 to 1968, he was the Chief of Military. He shook my hand just after this picture was taken. General Westmoreland toured the Station Hospital and I never saw him again. Vice President of the United States, Hubert Humphrey and the Governor of Michigan, George Romney were with General Westmoreland during his visit to NSA Station Hospital, Da Nang, Vietnam, in December 1967. The 1968 Tet Offensive would take place one month after this picture was taken.
