In light of the Tumblr announcement regarding adult content, I will be seriously considering moving this blog to a new platform. This is not strictly about the ban and there are many factors involved in this decision process. I will NOT be deleting this blog, whatever I decide.

I will update you all in the coming weeks with my final decision. Thank you all for your continued support.

For what it’s worth, the top option is creating a website. This would include fees and a lot of additional work on my part. Consider becoming a patron or making a one time donation: DONATE

Bottoms Up!, 1967

It doesn’t get fresher than this. In this photograph, Sergeant George Nemosbatho takes a drink of coconut milk directly from the source. If only for a moment, there is a tropical reprieve in Nemosbatho’s search and seizure mission in the midst of war.

Can I ask you on your opinion on the event known as the “Winter Soldier Investigation”? I’ve been scrolling past some of the confessions of former US combat vet’s who saw or participated in alleged war crimes and I can definitely see why most media outlets at the time choose to ignore the hearings. The stuff the vets admitted to seeing and doing is absolutely horrid.

By 1971, when the Winter Soldier Investigation occurred, I think the nation was honestly very tired of Vietnam. This was after the exposure of My Lai (though prior to the conviction of William Calley), after the Kent State shootings, after the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, and after numerous protests against the war (and for the war – see the Hard Hat Riots).

I think that, no matter how unpleasant it is for us, we owe it to participants in the WSI and the war in general to listen to such testimonies.
