    Many years ago I saw a group of photos belonging to a Canadian Vietnam vet , he was involved in the Phoenix Program . Sniping and training of mountain tribesmen . He had some amazing photos , large group of tribesmen , all in tiger stripes , his tent with a Canadian flag flying above it , etc . But it was before the digital revolution . And it would have cost big money to get them copied . He did tell me something interesting , he said Canadian volunteers would be put into SF or front line positions because they didn't have to report them as American causalities , so they would make the US papers causality lists . I thought that was very interesting , and I wish i had a copy of his photos !

    On the topic of Vietnam war music, WOODSTOCK 69

    Country Joe Mcdonald, Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana and some hippies

    IMO around the time the best music was made

    A few years ago, I went to a concert by the band The Grass Roots. They dedicated their song, "Live For Today" to all of the Viet Nam vets in the audience. It was a very popular song with many of us who were in country at the time.

    Interesting to note, The press photog who won the Pulitzer also wouldn't condemn the summary judgement.

    Quote by SteveR View Post
    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.
