EXCLUSIVE PICS: Why We Fought In Vietnam

A few weeks ago we got a great deal of pictures from Nguyen Trong Tan, a fan of the American Military Facebook page, illustrating why we were in Vietnam. Below are her words and we want to share those photos with you in an American Military News exclusive. She makes the point that we Americans were there to protect lives, especially the futures of their children. Many of these pictures show U.S. troops saving children and getting them out of harms way as the Communists tried blowing them up. We found her words and these pictures touching.

That’s Why They Fought In Vietnam

Terrorist bombing by VC outside US Embassy in Saigon (March 30, 1965). Innocent civilians were killed and wounded, lying on the street and waiting for help after terrorist bombing by the communists.

Vietnamese students indignation hanged effigies De Gaulle and Ho Chi Minh who signed Geneva Accords, divided Vietnam, always tried to destroy all of the other parties for one dictatorial communist power and avoid any free democratic election to reunite with South Vietnam! Before that, Ho Chi Minh signed the traitorous Preliminary Agreement with France (confirming that Vietnam is a free but not independent country within the French Union blocks) for the green light to return to France colonized Vietnam!

    My father was a US Navy Medical Corpsman who did two tours in Vietnam. I see these photos of all these children with bare bottoms and I remember him telling us about how the parents were not allowed to cover them because Viet Cong routinely used them as hiding places for grenades and body bombs. If we are truly one earthly family of man, how do we sit back on our hands and allow such atrocities to be committed- in the name of any ideology? Are we any less obligated to protect the helpless just because the weapons are Serin gas rockets rather than hand grenades? We ARE the Good Guys- f**k the Liberal political rhetoric! Merciful intervention is a moral imperative- not a religious or political ideology. If we cannot stop this evil anywhere else in the world, we will not keep it from our own shores- no matter how big we grow the NSA.

    I would like to thank Nguyen Trong Tan for these photos from a time forgotten or unknown by many Americans. This was my life then and has been a part of my life ever since. You will never see this side of military action in the movies. Thanks for the post..

    No voice except thanks is in this post. This is the archives of love and mercy in the soldier’s courage. We’ll continue having those all for walking up again.
    Thank you for great post.

    Someone should show these to Hanoi Jane who accused these guys of being baby killers. Having grown up during the VN War, this yanks at my heartstrings and I’m grateful that someone from the other side has stood up for the American Military that even some of our own people have vilified. Thank you Nguyen Trong!
