    The bridge style is distinctive, but very common. It's a Bailey-style bridge, very widely used after WWII by military engineering units. US forces would have erected plenty of them in Vietnam. – John Dallman Jun 30 '19 at 12:04
  • I blew the photo up to 1200 dpi. The patch in the upper left of the photo is very distinctive, green with the red numeral one. Other photos in the collection are fromthe same division. – Photolibrarian Jun 30 '19 at 13:17
  • What was the source of this photo? It is probably useful to include that information to help research answers. – Semaphore Jul 1 '19 at 5:18
  • A collection of photos from the same person in Vietnam were purchased on ebay. – Photolibrarian Jul 1 '19 at 23:26
