I really didnt want to go down this road...

But Cap was taken out of Ice in march of 1964 , at least thats when the issue came out. Even if the history was 10 years off. cap would have still been alive when the US was involved in vietnam.

And my examples all APPLY.. The soviet invasion of Afghanistan happened in 1979 , and raged into the late 80s. Cap knew about it.

What about others i didnt mention..(that the public knows about) such as Iran/Contra affair , Panama , etc..And lets not forget all the shady moves the US has done in the 616 universe.

Cap as a SHIELD member and high profile adventurer would probably know of dozens of other black ops type moves that America has done to ensure their interests. He probably would have participated in some.

Cap is different things to different people. He doesnt always get portrayed consistantly.

And his depiction in Civil War is by far the most bi-polar, perplexing , and mind boggling depiction to date.

Are there any Vietnam-era set Cap stories out there?

Cap knows, but the US has several other black op units to do these things. He is their public face of superheroism, not their dark side. Nick Fury, on the other hand may have been involved in all these things.

Again, someone else more suited to the job would have done it, though Steve certainly has probably participated in many open theaters of war such as the Gulf War, the Ranger debacle in Mogadishu and the Balkan conflicts. Stuff like toppling regimes, killing presidents and unleashing plagues is more on the SHIELD wavelength than his.

No comic character ever is, really.

This is arguably his first war in home soil, he's not representing America any more, but what he thinks are the liberties of America.
