This is probably one of the most infamous photos associated with the Viet Nam Conflict (a communist being shot):

Along with this one (a Buddhist monk burning himself in the streets of Saigon to protest Diem's rule):

And this one (the aftermath of the My Lai massacre, where US soldiers slaughtered unarmed women and children):

These photos all deeply impacted me when I was a kid, and my opposition to war can likely be found rooted in these images...
