The Vietnam Conflict started in the sixties and ended in the seventies. Sparked from conflicts before, Vietnam was split into two.
During 1954 the Geneva Convention aimed to stop the Indochina war, while Vietnam was under French occupation in the south and under communist control in the north. Ho Chi Minh, a leader of a guerilla group with aims to take back Vietnam, wasn't happy about the French controlling Vietnam. They drove the French out after a key battle at a communist stronghold. (Gilmore Giangreco 14-15)
Then in 1964 on August 2nd, Vietnamese Torpedo Boats had reportedly engaged a US Navy Destroyer, USS Maddox. The USS Maddox was on an intelligence-gathering mission 28-miles off of the coast around North Vietnam. "At 1630 hours, three North Vietnamese torpedo boats attacked the ship..." (Gilmore Giangreco 21)
Thus, the Tonkin Resolution was passed and gave Lyndon B. Johnson full power and finances to execute military operations.
The Tonkin Resolution actually had opened the eyes to congress, especially after Nixon had been bombing with B-52s even after saying he wanted to pull troops out of Vietnam and cease bombings. The policy had changed how we declare war today and also added many social revolutions, examples being the hippies which were quite different than generations passed. And politically, the president cannot declare war, Congress must do so.
The Vietnam Conflict was a called a Conflict because Congress had never officially declared War.

Today is the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon. Saigon was the capital of south vietnam. This picture is of the evacuation of CIA personnel. South vietnam fell and the country was unified as a communist nation. This was pretty much the end of the #VietnamConflict aka #VietnamWar. ---------------------------------------------------------- As always no direct attacks or disrespect against other users will be tollerated on this page and will result in a ban. ---------------------------------------------------------- Partner pages @libertarianreview @1776revolt @revolutionistlibertarian @a_very_confused_libertarian @libertarian_moderate @liberty.bear @libertarian_min

This book is many things, but one story it has to tell is of the incident that forms the basis of the Redgum son 'I was only 19'. The book tells the tale of 6RAR, A Company, 3 Platoon. My father was in 6RAR, A Company, 2 Platoon.
As it turns out the book tells of the whole experience from enlistment, to training & to battle that my father went through.
It is a version of his story; a story I didn't know, because I'd never asked.
So I've started to ask & it's tough to ask & even tougher for him to answer but it's 48 years later & I'm learning so much about my 23 year old father.
Lots of tears on both sides but it was time. If it is possible, I respect him even more for going on to be the man he is today.

Left: a peasant subject to torture.
Right: a civilian pleads with an Air Calvary Division soldier who is interrogating him during a "search and destroy" operation.

I've gained a huge amount of understanding, respect, and sorrow for Vietnam and it's residents. The war of aggression with the States left over 3 million Vietnamese killed (2 millions being civilians) with many of them still affected today, mainly by the remnants of chemical Agent Orange in newborn children. This country lost so much in attempting to defend itself from rebels and intruders, but after 8 years of war the Vietnamese were able to gain back their freedom #vietnamwar #secondindochinawar #warofaggression #vietnamconflict #agentorange

Well, they pegged it right #rollinscollege #thankaveteran #vietnamconflict

Sometimes it's solemn to pay homage to those who lost their lives and those that never made it back. #vietnamconflict #vietnamwar #whatisworthfightingfor?

"Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence. Hovering there I've chased the shouting wind along and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air." -John Magee, High Flight.

On rare occasions, the extreme moisture and heat of Vietnam would sometimes make the wooden furniture on M14 rifles to warp and create issues with the weapon system. Despite this, the M14 is one of the best rifles in history in my opinion. #gonebutnotforgotten #vietnamconflict #vietnamvet #70s #60s #vietnamwar #M14 #m1a #war #warriors
