I have been looking for this one for a while. Thank you!

Yeah, it took me ages to find it as well! I saw it on a documentary about the "Photographs That Changed History", and it took me about 8 months to find it!

Definitely it stands as one of the greatest war shots of all time. Very deep without being sentimental. Not the usual cliché photograph.
Let me congratulate you for finding the image, especially after 8 months search! Larry Burrows is in the company of Eugene Smith, Salgado and Gilles Caron as fas as war photography is concerned.
