Vet tries to resolve the thriller of “Donut Dollies” that may be seen in pictures from the Vietnam Struggle
While they were talking, Roberts pulled out a Mamiya SLR, one of those boxy numbers that have faded with nostalgia. He kept the photos he took of women that day with him all these years – when he returned to his bride in the United States, when he taught junior high science at a prep school in Philadelphia, when he had been for three decades Taught computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, and when he retired in suburban Pittsburgh seven years ago. In the pictures Roberts took that day, it is the women’s slight smiles that stand out. Such a smile was rare during Roberts’ nearly a year job in the village.
