On April 30th, the 35th anniversary of the Vietnam war I posted an article with links to a few picture sets.

Big Picture (one of my favorite photo blogs) came out with their set today (a week late slackers!), here is a sample:

OH NOES trigger discipline. :P

Very powerful pictures.  A few in this set because very famous, even won Pulitzer prizes.  I remember when the first Rage Against The Machine album came out in 1992 with the picture of the burning monk on the cover.  Definitely their best album by the way.

I’m sure war hasn’t got any easier, but when I look at those pictures it’s amazing to see how much they did with NO modern technology. Sure makes how I spend my days look insignificant.  I have the utmost respect for anyone that has ever served, or is currently serving in the Military.

UPDATE: Steven S. notified me of lots more pictures just put up at another PLOG – HERE
