Abstract:

In addressing the war in South Vietnam, President Kennedy once said in the final analysis, it is their war. They are the ones who have to win it or lose it. We can help them, we can give them equipment, we can send our men out there as advisors, but they have to win it, the people of Vietnam.i Americas involvement in the Vietnam War spanned from the presidential administrations of Dwight Eisenhower to Gerald Ford, lasting over a decade. The United States military involvement ended in 1973, much as it had begun under Kennedys administration, as a foreign internal defense FID mission with the US military serving in an advisory role.
