Sometimes, when a fisherman catches a 4 foot long fish, after he's told the story about twenty times, the fish has somehow grown into a 8 footer.

Probably some returning GI told how the "monsoons" rained for months without end. Well, it may have rained for months...but like most other places in the world, there were breaks in between. A day or two without rain, maybe a half a day with rain...and the other half without it, etc. It probably seemed to rain alot to most GIs for one very good reason; THEY HAD TO SLEEP IN IT!

Sleeping in the mud (from the rain) for just 24 hours will seem like you slept in the mud for a whole week. Sleeping in the mud for a week will seem like a month (or a year).

So, "did it rain in Vietnam...for four months..."; answer: for the men that had to live in it (and sleep, eat, and conduct hygiene functions, etc.) it probably felt like it did.

A combat GI, especially a grunt (infantryman) loses his concept of time in the war zone; and generally, only officers & NCO's (Non-Commissioned Officers/Sergeants) WORE WRIST WATCHES.

How did Vietnams weather affect the Vietnam war?

Humidity affected electronics. The heat was unbearable. The rain caused serious discomfort. The insects came out shortly after the rain. It was hard from a psychological point of view. Bad weather could make bombing runs impossible, or more dangerous. Landing strips could get hard to find in bad weather. Heat could become so intense planes could have issues taking off and helicopters could carry only reduced payloads. Flying in poor weather made this job more dangerous. Weather always affects war.

What were the permanent damages to Vietnam after the Vietnam war?

Time has healed most, if not all of the damage to both the land and it's people. The younger generation have not, for the most part experienced war (for the first time, as earlier generations of Vietnamese had to experience war from 1942 through 1975), and the trees and other vegetation have grown back, homes have been rebuilt, bridges restored, etc. The ONLY lasting effect appears to be the countless bomb craters thru-out the former North & South Vietnam, Lao's and Cambodia. But time has taken care of that too; green grass has grown around the craters, and rain water has filled them, forming ponds through out the lands. Farmers in some cases, are cultivating them, raising certain plant crops and fish. From the air, the ponds LOOK NATURAL, and in many cases are beautiful to the eye, when surrounded by green grass and flowers.
