    "In 1967, Ms. Leroy was the only accredited journalist to partake in a combat jump with the 173rd Airborne during Operation Junction City. Two weeks after the battle for Hill 881, she was wounded with a Marine unit in the DMZ." 173rd History

    How very sad.
    Her style of photojournalism was to be admired. Totally unlike the CNN crowd who "Become" news. Ms.Leroy reminded me of the type of work done by the late Ernie Pyle.
    Always present without becoming a presence.

    Thanks for posting this, Suzanne. Catherine Leroy's work was (and still is, of course) excellent.
