    These two images are the ones that have stuck in my mind for many years and are iconic because they show the brutality of war the first image is a Vietcong insurgent executed in the streets of Saigon if I remember correctly.
    The second is a Buddhist monk that lights him self on fire in protest .

    Regards Mark K
    The " VC insurgent " being shot that seems haunt you was the leader of an execution squad that was assigned to murder the families of high ranking politicians and soldiers . He had murdered his best friends wife and children just hours before. He died way to easy.
    That fact wasn't convenient for the anti war press at the time.
    The folks that are queasy about the facts of war would$hit a brick if I told you how this mixed blood American Indian would have killed him.

    Great thread Militaria Collector...truly Iconic as it is titled. The photos speak more than words can express. I know there are thousands of photos that would also bring to light many unaswered questions and thoughts...along with what is not being taught in schools anymore.
    Truth of the matter is barely Military history is being taught..due to sensitivity groups. I am looking forward to more postings of black and white photos. Regards Larry

    Most excellent indeed...........but anyone else needs to remember the sensitivity of the remaining vets and those who lived there during that time who are still alive today. There are still a ton of Vietnam vets still around which any extra wording may cause sharp responses. I will and the other Mods will be watching this thread as I feel this is a history that needs to be seen..just like the KL camps. The posting of photos and descriptions are perfect for content. Dont go over it into anything political. I hope it will not be necessary to close the thread but should be treated as the same respect as the KL camp threads.
    The black and white photos are stunning and say alot more than words can describe.
    There are some very knowledgeable gents who served there that are members here on the forum,,which I think would add greatly to the History of the war,,but again try not to lean into the political side of the war but on the photographs as it was happening. The chopper pics are awesome!! Regards Larry
