Personal Snapshots: Picturing the Vietnam War (Experiencing War, Stories from the Veterans History Project, Library of Congress)
Understanding the power of a picture, the Veterans History Project encourages veterans to submit photographs of their time in the military. Photography can play an important role in telling a service story, and we focus our lens on 12 collections from the Vietnam War, all of which include candid, amateur photographs. Taken by soldiers, sailors, and Marines who sought to capture their experiences on film, these snapshots offer a counterpoint to images created by official military photographers, providing a vivid, intensely personal view of the Vietnam War through the eyes of those who served.
