Vietnam War veteran James Speed Hensinger has recently publicly released his incredible photos of US troops unleashing an endless stream of fire on a Viet Cong sniper. In April 1970, at the age of 22, Hensinger was nine months into his tour of duty as a paratrooper with the 173rd Airborne Brigade when an elusive sniper that had invaded the US base in Phu Tai at night was met with brute force in retaliation.
