Nick Ut Takes His Pulitzer Prize Winning Photo In Vietnam Of Running Girl/ Burned By Napalm-This Day 1972

On this day in 1972 photographer Nick Ut of The Associated Press took his Pulitzer Prize-winning photo of a naked 9 year old girl named Phan Thi Kim Phuc running down a road after being burned by napalm. This is one of those iconic pictures that are hard to get out of your mind. When I think of Vietnam that picture comes to mind and also the picture of the execution in Saigon and the one of the monk who set himself on fire.
