US males living at home, in the United States of America, were drafted (conscripted), or volunteered, for the US Military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard), and WERE SENT to Vietnam to fight the war.

Many of Viet Vets used their old fatiques for rags and worked on their cars with them. After ridding themselves of anything military, the Vietnam Vets often let their hair grow out (to better fit in with society...short hair indicated a military or policeman) and they never talked about Vietnam (with the one exception of filling out Job Applications); lest they become discriminated against (not get a job) or end up arguing with somebody or getting into a fist fight with someone.

So, it was best to just "keep quiet" and avoid trouble.

The country was polarized by the conflict, with many supporting the US role and especially the soldiers, while others protested the war and the military draft. The protests culminated in violent demonstations that marred the 1968 Democratic Party convention in Chicago, and the tragic shooting of students at Kent State in 1970.

The peace movement in the US included many who vilified the soldiers as well as US political leaders, and condemned what they saw as US Imperialism and war crimes. The sentiment against the war increased to the point that the US sued for peace, and the troops were ordered home. Congress would not approve further funds to support South Vietnam, leading to a rapid victory by the forces of North Vietnam.

It was ignored until about 1965 when the protest movement became effective. When the Kent State shootings happened, on 4 May 1970, the US public finally demanded an exit from Vietnam.
