Vietnam was the last time "the world's oldest profession" was "un-officially" accepted by the military; Korean War, WW2, WW1, US Civil War, Frontier Wars, etc. all had em. Vietnam was also the last war in which US fighting men could bring home "war souvenirs (rifles and handguns)." Vietnam was the last war in which US fighting men were issued cigarettes. Vietnam was the last war in which women were assigned to the WAC's and WAVEs: US Army (Women's Army Corps) and US Navy (Women Allowed into the Navy for Volunteer Emergency Service). Vietnam was the last war in which US fighter pilots became combat aces (5 or more aerial kills/dog-fights).
