      • Pretty good. Like the use of B+W for the dismal Vietnam pic's in contrast to the colorful more warm-fuzzy memories of the "Summer of Love". (Which IMO ended with Charlie Manson and his crew). Remember the daily body counts on the evening news. How come they don't include daily body counts and the live combat footage on the news these days.
      • Body count on the enemy side was more important then, now body count on our side is what counts. 1969 is when I went from Woodstock to the Marine Corps.
      • Good collection and nice idea of half color and half black and white
      • Well merged with the color-black combination, nice idea to show the real suffering of the world
      • Hidden Author - I remember body counts on USA boys, not VC. If you went USMC, you must have enlisted, rather than a draftee. Good Tidings. (Semper Fi.) You must have seen a lot in the green. If our current news outlets were allowed to include our daily body counts and live combat footage where would popular opinion be these days. Would we still be in Afghanistan. Got some kin involved in that CF. Your chop's got: General Nguyễn Ngọc Loan offing Nguyễn Văn Lm. Phan Thị Kim Phc (running ... on a road after being napalmed). You left out Bhuddist Monks immolating themselves in war protest. Why aren't any contemporary images of the carnage allowed to come out and grab us. Are we all ho-hum about it, or just not paying attention.
      • Semper Fi Steve10, just to answer a couple of things, believe it or not I was drafted in the USMC, right after woodstock, what a bummer it was. The monk immolating himself is there, barely visible, bottom, at six o'clock. This chop was very personal, didn't come out as well as I had in mind, lack of time to put more work into it.
