Vietnam War by CoolingPT Vietnam War by CoolingPT
Some soldiers resting over some mission...playing a few songs...
this picture was taken around 1965 in South Vietnam
i putted some effects onto it...

(also known colloquially as Vietnam or Nam as well as the American War in Vietnam) 1 was a conflict in which the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRVN, or North Vietnam) and its allies fought against the Republic of Vietnam (RVN, or South Vietnam) and its allies. North Vietnam's allies included the National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam, the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China. South Vietnam's allies included the United States and South Korea. US combat troops were involved from 1965 until their official withdrawal in 1973. Enormous numbers of civilian casualties resulted from the whole war in Vietnam, most of them being inflicted by the North Vietnamese Army (NVA, Viet Cong Socialist forces). The war ended on April 30, 1975 with the re-unification of Vietnam.

I'd consider this war more of a psychological loss for the U.S., what with how split the whole country was with even going through with this in the first place in addition to all of the other stuff that was going on in the U.S. while the war was going on.

Soldiers in Vietnam Gather Around a Guitar

Members of Company A of the 14th U.S. Infantry Division gather around a guitar after a hard day during "Operation Yellowstone," which lasted from December 1967 to March 1968. Many soldiers in Vietnam would customize their helmets by writing slogans on the cloth covers; the guitar-playing soldier here has dubbed himself the "Oklahoma Kid."

The original photo (and my text) are belong to the United States National Archive.

My dad knew some people in Vietnam. There's a guy working in a store in my town (we go there so often we're friends with everyone that works there) that was an American soldier during the war and my brother had a science teacher who was a photojournalist of sorts in Vietnam. Hell, my dad lived through the time of the war (though he was never in Vietnam thank God, or I wouldn't be here)

The U.S. only lost because they gave into a bunch of acid-shooting morons, and their baby-boomer idealistic NONSENSE!

i wonder what is the song of this lyrics (this is what i think the lyrics is i just do not know the song) : i will survive way to raise the flag oh with red wine and booze
OohHaiMark Featured By Owner May 26, 2012
The song you're thinking of is "Fortunate Son" by Creedence Clearwater Revival, though those aren't the lyrics. The lyrics are actually "Some folks are born, made to wave the flag - Ooh, they're red, white and blue". Hope this helps, man!

i love this photo my whole family came from the vietnam war and my grandfather was a soldier they had to flee because they lived in south vietnam and since the south lost thats just what happened but i think you left out a few parts. yes we lost because the americans surrendered, but wasnt north vietnam aided by Soviet Union? basically america and soviet union came to vietnam to fight against eachother thats what i know about this
confusedbook Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2010
May I use this photo for a media project I will have at school. I will not sell the pic nor in any way profit except to achieve a good grade. If you say no its ok but I would apreciate it if I can. Please respond by Feb 21 @ 6:00pm thank you.

Saying that the VC killed most civilians shows you don't know much of the war itself. By the way, Thailand, Australia, the Philipines and New Zealand also provided soldiers.
KickassConnor Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2010  Student Digital Artist
yea, look up the My Lai Massacre, things like that happened alot more than the pentagon would acknowledge. you see, vietnam made alot of soldiers lose their minds and replaced it with a great level of paranoia.
lux69aeterna Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010  Professional Photographer
Yes, for sure... Same with the Korean war... But that's history, better to look forward somehow :)

And he's playing an a-minor chord. A very sad sounding one.
Its fitting.

Very nice picture, respect to all those involved. But give some acknowledgment its not your photo.

With respect to the original photographer, I think you should more clearly acknowledge the fact that this is not an original photo of yours, but a mere edited version of someone elses.
