A little over 75 full scans of the Ivy Leaf, the 4th Division's publication in Vietnam. Special thanks to Adele Willenbecher and the 1/12th Red Warriors for sharing these scans. The 35th Infantry Regiment Association donated most of these to Texas Tech, but it was Adele who got them to release the scans to the public.
