OLD THINGS part 2


 This “old thing” is a poster that I’ve had since I was a kid. I’m not sure where it came from. For those readers who are not old enough to remember the draft, be very glad. I was 15 years old when the Vietnam War finally came to an end. The thing I will always remember is something you don’t see today. Real, honest reporting directly from the war-front. Great journalism by people like Walter Cronkite, and of course….the nightly “body count”.

  1. That is amazing and at the same time scary. What a thought provoking piece of memorabilia.

  2. Very sobering… and peculiar. Something about the graphics of this poster makes me think of Carnation baby formula and Chick-fil-A.
