Since a search didn't turn up any recent threads about the Second Indochina Conflict, I thought it might be a good idea to open up a general picture-thread on that war, especially in the light of all those great LIFE photos I've stumbled upon.
A side note: Please post all SF, LRRPs, SEALs, SOG and such in the appropriate thread: http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums/showthread.php?t=125381&page=34

That's the first bunch. Caption just said 'The Cavalry Moves Out In Vietnam'. I think it's the 11th ACR around 1967.

Last bunch of 11th ACR. This is just a selection, there must be more than 100 pics of that series alone in the LIFE archive.
FYI: I've done some slight postprocessing on most of the pics 'cause they are pretty faded.

Next series is entitled 'Vietnam War-Dak To Battle And Aftermath'.
Most of the guys are 173rd Airborne, date must be somewhat around November 1967.

Most from Lam Sm, into Laos. Keep this in mind... we all loved to take pictures wading in water, crossing rivers, etc. You would think that we spent half our time trudging through waist deep water. Actually, when pictures were taken it was the unusual. Look at the terrain... does it look like the Mekong Delta? Most action was in the mountains and plateaus where there was a scarcity of water.

Adding to what Jack said, Summer the dust, inches deep. Water is difficult to come by. Dehydration is the norm. Monsoon time is a different issue, then wind and water rules. Everything is wet.

No offense intended, but the Marines landing on the beach was the ultimate photo-op. Some of our SF guys were in nearby beach-front bars drinking and there was a Vietnamese welcoming party complete with girls, etc.

No offense intended, but the Marines landing on the beach was the ultimate photo-op. Some of our SF guys were in nearby beach-front bars drinking and there was a Vietnamese welcoming party complete with girls, etc.



Jack,

That is probably the way it was, it was a great PR photo op. My experience was simple, photographers were never in the Shyte. The really bad places, everyone who could, avoided them.

Photos by soldiers where when the could take them. Those, I like best.

BTW, great photos

No. I mean the photographer held his camera outside the aircraft (via a window or door) and shot the picture facing back into the aircraft. Thereby getting a shot of both the interior and exterior......

He's likely standing in the door at the rear of the C47 and facing forward....See the door here; http://spooky47.com/images/ac47adotjpg

Chaplain John McNamara of Boston makes the sign of the cross as he administers the last rites to photographer ****ey Chapelle in South Vietnam Nov. 4, 1965. Chapelle was covering a U.S. Marine unit on a combat operation near Chu Lai for the National Observer when she was seriously wounded, along with four Marines, by an exploding mine. She died in a helicopter en route to a hospital. She became the first female war correspondent to be killed in Vietnam, as well as the first American female reporter to be killed in action. Her body was repatriated with an honor guard consisting of six Marines and she was given full Marine burial. (AP Photo/Henri Huet)

United States Army Iroquois helicopters are landing to take them back to Nui Dat after completion of Operation Ulmarra, the cordon and search by 7RAR of the village of Phuoc Hai. Operation Ulmarra was part of Operation Atherton, conducted by 2RAR/NZ (Anzac) (The Anzac Battalion comprising 2nd Battalion, the Royal Australian Regiment (2RAR) and a component from the 1st Battalion, Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment) and 7RAR. Left to right: Private (Pte) Peter Capp (kneeling); Pte Bob Fennell (crouching, facing camera); Corporal Bob Darcy (left of Fennell); Pte Neal Hasted (centre, front); Pte Ian Jury (centre, back, holding rifle); Pte Colin Barnett (front, right); Lance Corporal Stan Whitford (left of Barnett); helicopter marker at right is Pte John Raymond Gould. The United States Army Iroquois UH-1D helicopter is operated by 2 Platoon, 162nd Assault Helicopter Company, 11th Combat Aviation Battalion. (Having achieved almost the status of an icon, this image was chosen for, and is etched on, the Vietnam memorial on Anzac parade, Canberra, ACT, dedicated in October 1992)

Couldn't see too much wrong with it, I don't think Peter Harvey would be game to **** it up after spending a bit of time with Dave and Bob. They down played (or didn't have time to go too in depth) the impact Alpha Company and the 1 Squadron APCs arrival had on letting Delta Company break contact, nothing about the 9 Squadron choppers with the RSM George Chinn on board resupplying the boys with 7.62, the awesome work the Kiwi FO party did, the US 155mm battery, or the outstanding leadership of WO2 Jack Kirby DCM (with talk of a VC) who moved around the position distributing ammunition and leaving the perimeter to drag boys back in to the Company.

Thanks for your contribution Clear_blues, but I would suggest that we adhere to a certain standard in this tread. Posting random images without any comments, captions or any other accompanying information is akin to just typing 'vietnam war' into google image search. You got pictures of Marines, Army, Air Force, Brown Water Navy, SEALs, ARVN, aircraft, soldiers, Vietnam wall, homefront, Khe Sanh, a famous sniper, central highlands, I Corps, Mekong delta etc. pp. all in one post, there's no structure, no context.

Just as an example, this pic you posted earlier got a nice little caption:

Combat Airboats in the Vietnam WarUnit Name:Army A-404, Co D, 5th SPGA, IV Corp--Vietnam 1970
Co's Boat, El Cid; my boat, Head Frog (my call sign)
When we think of the Vietnam War we Often think of soldiers jumping in and out of helicopters as this was the major strategy for combat.
in late 1964, another form of transportation and combat made its debut in the Mekong Delta, the Hurricane Aircat (Airboats).Capable of operating in just four inches of water, it was powered by a rear mounted airplane propeller and could reach almost 35mph...perfect for the Marsh land and rice fields.
This speed of 35mph made the craft perfect for flank security of Riverine assault boats or for fast reconnaissance.
CIDG and Mike Force units also used them in the rainy season to pursue and intercept the Viet Cong throughout the flooded areas of the Mekong Delta. The Aircat was armed with a Browning 30cal. machine gun mounted on the bow and could carry a maximum of 6 soldiers. Some were mounted with a 50cal. mounted on the bow but that would push the boats back and they would have to keep pulling forward as they lit up the tree lines firing on the Viet Cong.

Landing Zone near An Khe, Vietnam (http://www.flickr.com/photos/smuckatelli/2925516910/) by Nigel Smuckatelli (http://www.flickr.com/people/smuckatelli/), on Flickr

Early in the war landing zones were often hacked out of the jungle by hand. As the war progressed and the need for quick landing zones became apparent the military developed a bomb called a "daisy cutter". The BLU-82 used conventional explosives and weighed 15,000 pounds and could clear an area from 300 to 900 feet in diameter. It was usually dropped from a CH54 Skycrane due to its enormous size.

Tet OffensiveHue of course, is as well known for the events that happened here in 1968 as for its Imperial past. Perhaps better known. There are quite a number of events that occurred during the Vietnam War that are referred to as 'turning points", but it is probably fair to say that none were more significant than the Tet Offensive.
To cut a long and extremely interesting story short, the Lunar New Year (Tet) celebrations were usually declared to be cease fire periods (used as re-supply periods by the Communist forces) and Tet 1968 was again declared as a cease fire period by both sides. Large numbers of American and South Vietnamese took the opportunity to go on leave and vigilance was generally relaxed - as intended! The extensive military preparations made by the NVA and Viet Cong were disguised in the Hue district as preparations for an attack on Khe San - a base set up in the Highlands by the Americans with the intention of luring the NVA into an attack they could not win.
The Tet offensive started in the early hours of 31 January 1968, with coordinated attacks all over Vietnam. The audacity of some of the attacks, such as that on the US Embassy in Saigon, prompted the American people to question whether the war they were told they were winning, was really being won at all. The most spectacular assault, took place here in Hue.
The Hue Citadel was held in January 1968 by Vietnamese troops commanded by General Truong, whose 1st ARVN Division headquarters were in the Mang Cu Compound, within the Citadel. The only American presence was the MACV Compound in the 'new city' on the south bank of the Perfume River, one block from the Saigon Morin Hotel that we stayed in. MACV stood for Military Assistance Command Vietnam, and their job was to provide assistance to the South Vietnamese, particularly in the form of fire support from artillery and aircraft.
At 02:33, a signal flare lit up the night sky and two battalions of the NVA Sixth Regiment attacked the western side of the Citadel. Their objectives were General Truong's Mang Cu Compound (in the part of the Citadel missing off the top of the map a couple of photos back); the Tac Loc Airfield (which was inside the Citadel and can be seen on the map as the diagonal road (the old runway) under the words King Thanh), and the Imperial Palace itself. A simultaneous attack by the NVA Fourth Regiment was made on the MACV Compound on the south side of the river. At the Western Gate of the Citadel, a four-man North Vietnamese sapper team, dressed in South Vietnamese Army uniforms, killed the guards and opened the gate, after which their comrades poured into the Citadel.
This photo shows one of the outer gates in the Citadel Walls (Cua Thuang I think, which opens towards the river in the south-east corner of the Citadel, and was one of the last areas retaken), battered by tank and artillery fire, with a napalm attack taking place in the distance.

Vietnam, 1966

This photograph of Australian troops was taken during the Vietnam War (1962–75). In 1966 the first conscripts were pressed into service, greatly increasing the Australian military presence in Vietnam.
By the early 1970s, fierce resistance mounted by the Viet Cong, along with growing opposition to conscription and to the impact of war on the lives of civilians, led to the withdrawal of American and Australian troops.
This photograph comes from the collection of the National Archives of Australia.
It should be cited as NAA: A1200, L58618.

The Flying BananaThe Boeing-Vertol H-21 was also known as the CH-21 and the UH-21 Shawnee. Troops called it the "flying banana" and in the early years of the Vietnam War it was a workhorse and multi-mission aircraft. The CH-21B assault helicopter could carry 22 fully-equipped troops. It was first introduced in 1961 and as late as 1967 there were still a few of these flying until finally superseded by the UH-1 Iroquois "Huey" and the Ch-47 Chinook.

Taekwondo Demonstration

The Vietnam War was not just an American war. Fighting with us were units from Australia, Thailand and South Korea. The fellows in the next two photos were from the ROK (Republic of Korea) unit stationed near Qui Nhon. They are giving us a demonstration in a martial art known as Taekwondo. We knew about karate but had never heard of Taekwondo. By the way, when the Tet offensive occurred in January of 1968 the Viet Cong took control of the city of Qui Nhon. After days of fruitless fighting the Americans called in the Koreans to clean out the town. The Koreans shot anything that moved and ended the occupation in short order.

What is that curved magazine @2:11?
Probably a custom-made mag holding anything between 30-40 rounds, there were some of those field modifications around, especially in Ranger units with their XM177s and even after the intrduction of 30-round mags (around 1969). The guys in that picture were with L Company (Ranger) 75th Infantry, somewhat around 1970.

Here's a Ranger with a 50-round custom-made mag:

Personal pictures are much appreciated! Very nice, and many thanks.

Here are a few more official videos about the war, knock yourselves out:

Like the "Shotgun Rider, another documentary about early-war helicopter operations:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9g2OnGWUEJ4


Above the battlefields of World War II, the simple Piper Cub aircraft served as an observation platform for the adjustment of artillery fire, and the concept of Army Aviation as part of the ground combat team was born. Since then, the aircraft which help the fighting man do his job have become more sophisticated, more rugged, and more powerful. "Wings at the Tree Tops" have given the soldier a dimension of mobility which his foot-slogging brothers of twenty years ago would have found unbelievable.

Marines and their air support with some nice combat footage of USMC Phantoms:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnnjPr9zTlw


The role of the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War is examined. The film shows re-supply and close air strike operations in support of Marine ground forces in combat.

And finally Air National Guard units deployed to Vietnam, with a pretty cool introduction ;)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjBiWUieMag


"Friends and neighbors and people we know" is a documentary film produced by the United States Air Force which gives a comprehensive overview of the Air National Guard (ANG) involvement in Vietnam. The film crew followings various ANG tactical fighter squadrons allowing us to see their immediate response to the call to active duty, deployment to southeast asia, and the mission accomplishments that followed.

The photo was taken in 1968, '69, or '70 (I served two tours), somewhere around Quang Tri or Chu Lai in Vietname but I can't remember exactly where. I do remember that it was dusty and I was always cleaning that pea shooter.

After some of the incredible photography that has been put up above, which I just spent 2 hours looking through, it seems a bit trite to post these here, but they are definitely Vietnam-related, unusual and I haven't seen anything like them before, which is why I wrote the article.

These remarkable photographs of effigy-burning at a South Vietnamese military awards ceremony were taken by Brian Wickham in 1969 in the small, isolated village of Nha Be, near the mouth of the Nha be River.

I recently posted an interview/article with Arnold Krause, a Sergeant from the Vietnam War who served in the Iron Triangle. It's about the first time he was shot at in combat, when he stumbled on an NVA camp, and the fatal lessons he learned from his rookie mistakes that day.
