Serving in the military must be one of the most difficult things a person can do. My father was in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War. He never set foot in an actual theater of war (it must've been the glasses) but he did save this edition of UPTIGHT Magazine from Winter 1969. Even though I believe that there is no such thing as a just war, I can understand that humans have a natural predilection towards violence and are inherently selfish and therefore the reaction of governments to form military entities.
The front and back covers of the magazine are interesting because they juxtapose each other quite strikingly. The Vietnamese mother and son are engaging in an everyday activity while two US Army men are up in a tree, in a foreign land, looking for something suspicious.
