Vietnam War 1970
Troopers of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment operating in the former sanctuaries of the North Vietnamese army in Tay Ninh Province about 1 mile from the border in War Zone C Eye, the bunker-infested jungle for a possible ambush, March 15, 1970. NVA have long used this area along the ill-defined and sensitive border between Cambodia and South Vietnam as a base camp area since U.S. forces have been reluctant to operate in the area for political reasons.

In September 1950, the US army crossed the 38th parallel and drove the North Korean army to the banks of the Yalu River. Commander-in-Chief of the UNC General Douglas MacArthur had assessed that North and South Korea could be unified, without counting on the participation of the CCP troops. The photo shows the US army using a Browning M2 .50 calibre heavy machine gun against the opposing volunteer army.
