When gathering images, it is important to check for copyright and fair use of the images. One of the first places that you will most likely take a look at is Google images (searched with the term Vietnam War). While that may be the most familiar, it does not mean that it is the best way to look for images, as you do not know what copyright or licensing issues you may be able to use.
