Vietnam: Inconsolable
Larry Burrows’ photograph of 21-year-old helicopter crew chief James Farley sobbing, alone, after a disastrous March 1965 mission is almost too intimate, too personal — and yet the readers of LIFE, where the photo first appeared, would have known that here was something that must be confronted. Their emotions would, of course, have been torn: turn away, and allow the young man his private grief; or pay attention, and by paying attention pay tribute to what he and his crew — and, by extension, what all young people in all wars — have endured. There really is no choice. There is no turning away.this picture… no words.
