24 p. 

During the Vietnam War, the U.S. military gave the press unprecedented freedom of access to combat zones. This allowed newspaper reporters, photographers, and television crews to document a war involving U.S. sons and daughters on the other side of the world. This willingness to allow war documentation also was extended to the military's own photographers. While these military photographers may have been there to document the different operations of the war, their photographs also tell a story about the young men and women who fulfilled their duty to their country by serving in the Vietnam War. This lesson uses 13 photographs taken by military photographers to present images of many aspects of the Vietnam War. The lesson relates to Article I, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution granting Congress powers to raise and support armies, make rules for the government, regulate land and naval forces. It correlates to the National History Standards and to the National Standards for Civics and Government. The lesson provides historical background (with five resources); and suggests diverse teaching activities for classroom implementation, including photograph analysis, research and present, and creative writing. Photographs are appended. (BT)
