Photos and video of Vietnam

I've linked to before, and came upon it again today. There's lots of material there, such as these colour photos of soldiers of the Maeng-ho (yellow tigers) division, and this on-the-spot video of a tragic incident involving the ROK Marine Corps’ 2nd (Blue Dragon) Brigade in 1969.

I didn't realize writer Hwang Suk-Young served in Vietnam, nor did I know about this:
Brig. General Dai Yong Rhee, the deputy commander for all South Korean forces in Vietnam, was captured after failing to be evacuated from Saigon at the wars end in 1975 and was subsequently imprisoned by the North Vietnamese. He was released in 1980.
