What year was the vietnam war happening?
US involvement in Vietnam started in the early 1950’s. We were there as advisors. We officially became part of the battle in 1965 and pulled out in 1975. It is important to understand that President Johnson did NOT have Congressional approval to declare war, therefore we were not officially at war. ALSO when we pulled out – because of not being ‘at war’ with Vietnam – we did not lose the war. We officially pulled out and chose not to continue fighting.
