VIETNAM

November 1st, 1955 - April 30th, 1975

Military Advisors were first sent to Vietnam near the end of 1955.

Troop Deployments began in the early 1960's, and ramped up annually until 1972, 

when the determination was made to begin troop withdrawal. Following the departure of U.S.

and NATO troops, North Vietnam invaded and took Saigon in 1975.

Vietnam was the conflict with the most vocal anti-war sentiment, as well as shameful treatment of

U.S. Soldiers deployed under orders. Public signs read " No Dogs or GI's allowed on the Grass!"

Returning troops were spit on, called "Baby Killers" and often  worse. 

Anti-War Protest Marches dotted the country side throughout the late 60's and early 70's.
