Long ago and far away war…remember

Photographer Collection: Horst Faas in Vietnam

Horst Faas, a Pulitzer Prize-winning combat photographer who became one of the world’s legendary photojournalists in nearly half a century with the AP, captured these images during the Vietnam War. Faas died Thursday, May 10, 2012 in Munich at age 79.

Here’s a look at some of the powerful photographs by Faas in Vietnam. (AP)

These Pictures should remind us that America MUST always operate from a position of strength…..rather than of weakness ……AND NEVER let our military guard down.

#46

IF you don’t look at any of the pictures except #46 be sure to see the Cedartown, Ga. soldier..

This is a terrible reminder of what our troops and the South Viet Nam soldiers endured and the lives lost in this hellish war. I just wonder if any of the family of this Cedartown man are still around Cedartown.

This was sent by a Rockmart native and friend who was there. Some of the comments at the bottom of this are quite profound too. In effect stating that many those in power send our troops but do not go nor maybe fully understand the horror of war.
