PHC Daniel S. Dodd, U.S.N. (Ret.)
Chief Photographers Mate

Daniel S. Dodd was born June 25, 1931 in Kingston, PA.  Dodd joined the US Navy on September 8, 1950.  He achieved the rank of PHC and was discharged on March 16, 1970. 

Chief Photographers Mate Dodd was a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, having served during the Korean and Vietnam Wars.  Dan was the official photographer of Commander River Flotilla One (COMRIVFLOT-1) and many of his pictures were published in the book "Mobile Riverine Force Vietnam".

Many of Chief Dodd's Vietnam photos can be found on the MRF Association's web site at  Chief Dodd donated all his photos and audio to the MRFA; not only are his photos on the web site but posted in their mobile trailer and on display at their reunions.  Chief Dan Dodd was a good man and a good Sailor and will be missed by all who knew him and those who served with him.  The officers and members of the Mobile Riverine Force Association express their sincerest gratitude and admiration for the courageous work of combat photographers, like PHC Dan Dodd, USN (Ret.).  While the official photos are the property of the people of the United States, the heroism of those who took the pictures, as that of their subjects, will be their legacy forever.
