Below are some photos that Ronald "Dr. Joe" Peters was kind enough to send me. Joe was also with the 71St Bn, 567th TC at Newport and Camp Camelot during 66-67. As well as working at Newport, Joe also helped in the
construction of Camp Camelot in 1966. Some of the photos are of the early days of the 71St Bn at Camelot and Newport. Joe, thanks for the use of your photos.
