Biographical / Historical

Tony Gleaton, originally from Detroit, Michigan, served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1967 until 1970. While based at Camp Hansen in Okinawa before deploying to South Vietnam, Gleaton volunteered to go to Khe Sanh in the middle of the siege in 1968. Upon exiting the aircraft while landing, he was wounded bya mortar and evacuated to Japan for recovery. Once recovered, Gleaton went to the RVN in May 1968 and served first as the Battalion Commander's radioman for 1st Battalion, 1st Marines in I Corps until July and then as a ground Forward Air Controller attached to Alpha Company, 1/4 Marines, until November 1968 when he left Vietnam. Today, Gleaton is a world renowned photographer whose books and exhibits have helped expose the world of the minority peoples of the western United States and the people of Mexico and South America.
