[Vietnam War] Swinging with an unknown American soldier (c.1969).Vietnam War plenty of stories Swinging unknown American Vietnamese villagers softer side
Even though US troops were in Vietnam for a very serious reason that doesn’t mean that they didn’t take a break every once in a while. While there are plenty of stories about the horrors that soldiers inflicted on locals, there are just as many Vietnamese villagers who saw the softer side of the American military. Take for instance this photo that shows a solider kicking back and doing his best to placate a young boy who’s living in the middle of a war zone.
Even though this soldier was in the middle of a fight, he did his best to make sure that this child felt safe, secure, and happy - and for that he deserves to be thanked.
