Author Yasutsune “Tony” Hirashiki and editor Terry Irving discuss the story of Tony’s harrowing career as a TV cameraman in Vietnam detailed in On the Frontlines of the Television War. Hirashiki was an ABC News cameraman from 1966 to 2006, and was considered one of the best cameraman in the history of the company. “Once we had experienced Vietnam, one way or another, we’d always come back,” he said of what became known as the “Television War.”
