jayman419: He’s been identified, within a reasonable margin of doubt.
That’s most likely Larry Wayne Chaffin of the 173^(rd) Airborne Brigade Battalion.
The family provided several details which weren’t commonly known at the time. Former AP Press Editor Richard Pyle took those details and confirmed them by having AP Director of Creative Services Chuck Zoeller check their archives.
Notes show it was taken by Horst Faas on June 18, 1965 at the Phouc Vinh airstrip in South Vietnam, and Chaffin’s service record showed he was present at the time.
