Cool Old School Pictures From Vietnam

Vietnam War pictures aren't all images of pain. While there are many photos like those, and some of them are famous, there are also endless pictures simply showing young soldiers being young. Unseen photos from Vietnam portray soldiers relaxing, goofing off, going about mundane activities, posing with cute animals, or looking cool and unafraid for the folks back home.

Far from home with a lot of time on their hands, they took photos of their everyday lives. Pictures were sent back home so their parents would know they were okay, and many of these have since made their way to the internet.

Here are the coolest, old school pictures of the people and machines that fought the Vietnam War.
