Best Answer

1950's, 1960's, 1970's...but the war is the most famous for the 1960' burning...draft card burning...and all that. The 70's were quite critical however; Nixon/Cambodia/Laos/Christmas bombing/Watergate/the fall of Saigon (or the fall of South Vietnam). The 1950's...NO ONE heard of Vietnam before...but our men were there. The US cared only for Elvis Presley and color television & the coming of the micro-wave ovens; and transister radios...basically gun battles on the ground and WWII era propeller airplanes attacking communist ground positions/assassinations/ambushes in South Vietnam during this decade.
