Well, it was never a popular war and it was mostly fought due to our fears of the spread of communism as a result, many felt we had no real reason to send troops over. If you consider that the US has had an economic relationship with Vietnam since the 1990s, you can argue that in the end, the Vietnam War was a mistake. In a sense, its an insult to the loss of life and the troops that returned with PTS and mistreatment by those that got to stay home on their comfy couch.
