The American Traveler newspaper for August-November 1968 feature articles concerning the personnel, campaigns, and activities of the 1st Infantry Division. Included are photographs and articles pertaining to the members of the division in action in Vietnam. Of particular interest is a section within the September 1968 issue of the magazine
