Best Answer

Since the youngest age for legal enlistment was 17 at the time of the Vietnam War, one could postulate that the birth date of the "youngest" Vietnam Veteran could have been January 1st, 17 years previous to the last date on which US troops were in Vietnam. That day would have been the day the US Embassy was evacuated after Saigon fell to the North Vietnamese Army.

However, there have always been men who enlisted by falsification of their age. This was more common in World War Two, but there are cases during Vietnam where a soldier managed to get through Basic Training and Advanced Individual training before being discovered.

Also, the Mayaguez Incident is considered part of the Vietnam War, so you should also consider the US Marines and US Air Force personnel who served in that short conflict.

What qualifies as a veteran during Vietnam era?

Generally, a Vietnam era veteran is considered anyone who served in the military between 1964-1975. There are, however, some nuances in the case of Vietnam War veterans, who served in country during the war. They can date back to the late 1950s and early 1960s, when the US had advisers in Vietnam; also, while there were only few in Vietnam at this time, some US servicemen who served in 1974-1975 would be considered Vietnam veterans (I.e. marines present at the Fall of Saigon and US Navy sailors who aided in evacuating Saigon).

I served actve duty from 1959 to Dec 1962. I was in active reserve from 1962 to 1967. I never served in Vietnam. Am I considered a Vietnam veteran?

No, you are not considered a Vietnam veteran. To be considered a Vietnam veteran, one must have served in the Vietnam War theater of operations, which generally includes service in Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, or Cambodia between the dates of July 26, 1959, and May 7, 1975. Since you did not serve in Vietnam, you are not considered a Vietnam veteran.
