NOTE:  There’s nothing nice about war. The photojournalists during the Vietnam war did something that had never been done, and because of that America was able to see the #TRUTH about war, in back and white–there’s no sugar-coating the images, as it should be. The following images are of front line medics treating wounded soldiers, often being wounded themselves. This is a true testament to their brotherhood bond. The images  lack ‘gore’ but make up for it with thought-provoking and powerful message they relay: WAR IS HELL.

I had to share this last photo, although off topic from the above gallery, it was taken in Vietnam.

A brief moment caught on film of a Soldier, putting the war out of his mind. But the moment was ever so brief.
