Mendell Schellin Collection (267) Finding Aid
Item Number: 2670000000   (Click For More Item Information)
 Collection

One folder of correspondence, a safe conduct pass, a newspaper clipping, and 39 photographs detail Mendell Schellin's service in the 1st Battalion, 11th Infantry, 5th Infantry Division, 1969 - 1970. Correspondence dates from the war-era and is written to his father and aunt. Each letter describes the various photographs in his collection and details the terrain of his service, the types of Army equipment and artillery used during the period, and the overall life of an average infantryman. The newspaper clipping dates post-war and details Schellin's war experiences and his opinions on political aspects of the war, the North Vietnamese, and the media coverage of the war.
