Ed H. is a frequent contributor to the Outhouses of America Tour web site.  He is a Vietnam veteran and sends me a lot of Vietnam era photos of how they built latrines in the Army in Vietnam as well as pictures of how they used to burn the waste in 50 gallon barrels with a mix of Diesel and Jet fuel.

Here is his most recent contribution to the tour. He tells me

this is the outbuilding we used back in the fifties for this picture came from the photo album

Thanks for the photo Ed!
