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

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!
