Old Pics Archive originally published these photos of “Vietcong Female Soldiers” back in January but tweeted them out again yesterday (In honor of Memorial Day? Or maybe ’cause the women in here just look “badass” that they wanted to share again?). The Vietnam War still remains controversial and people on both sides suffered immense losses and clearly at least some of these pics are staged, but regardless of your feeling on the issue, these pictures provide a historical reminder of the strength of the women who fought alongside their male counterparts but are often not acknowledged and the harsh reality of wartime that didn’t discriminate by gender. Anyway check some of them out below and to see the rest go to Old Pics Archive:
