Another unknown part of the Vietnam War is the Massacre of the Duc Duc Refugee Village.
TERRORISTS TURN 2,000 HOME VILLAGE INTO AN ASHTRAY

On March 29, 1970, 1,500 communist troops and terrorists attacked a Vietnamese peasant-farming village to punish it for supporting American Marines who once served in the area. Hundreds and hundreds of innocent men, women and children were killed, wounded and reported missing. 2,000 homes were burned to ashes.

I lived and served (24/7) in the village before it was massacred. The above link has pictures (before and after), maps, news articles, military reports and eye witness accounts of the attack.

During the Vietnam War and after, the American news media rarely highlighted something good our troops were doing. The different military branches had many civil action programs.
