Haeberle Color[edit]

Main category: Haeberle Color

Haeberle took these photographs with his personal Nikon F camera, for which he had one 36-exposure roll of color film, which meant he did not have to turn in photos to the army's Public Information Office. These photographs depict atrocities done by American soldiers. Years later, Haeberle admitted that he had destroyed a few of photographs he took during the massacre, saying "I destroyed two images. They were of a couple of GIs, where you could identify them doing the killing. I figured, why should I implicate them—we're all guilty—there were one hundred-plus of us there."

Smail Color[edit]

John Henry Smail of the 3rd Platoon, took at least 16 color photographs depicting U.S. Army personnel, helicopters, and aerial views of Mỹ Lai.

Alaux Color[edit]

First Lieutenant Roger L. Alaux Jr., a forward artillery observer, who was assigned to Charlie Company during the combat assault on Mỹ Lai 4, also took some photographs from a helicopter that day, including aerial views of Mỹ Lai, and of the Charlie Company's landing zone.
