In this powerful series of photographs, U.S. Navy Corpsman Vernon Wike is captured helping a wounded Marine, during the battle for Hill 881, near Khe Sanh, 1967. In the first photo, Wike is trying to staunch the wound. In the second, he is trying to find a heartbeat. In the third, he has just realized his friend is dead.
