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.

Check the site of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, it will list the name, rank, age, home of record, branch of service, and date of death.
No, they are listed by the date that the service men and women were taken from us.
During the Vietnam War there was a draft lottery. They would randomly choose a number from 1 to 365 ( a process much like randomly choosing a number for any lottery), and it would stand for the day of the year indicating the date of birth of young men of 18 years of age, and then they would draft people who were born on that date.
suck on your own balls peeps

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).
the date of the Vietnam dedication was 1960
The youngest Selena Gomez will date is 14 years old.
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.
The youngest age he would date is no younger than a 14 year old.
