Johnson gave permission to attack Vietnam forces in 1965. In the same year Saigon fell, which signaled the return of U.S. forces in 1975. U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War was 10 years 1965-75.

The United States had soldiers in Vietnam from 1959 to 1973. The Paris Peace Accords were signed in February, 1973 among North Vietnam, South Vietnam and the United States. The U.S. had all of their troops out of Vietnam by April, 1973.

The South Vietnamese government fell to the communist North in April, 1975.

From 1959 to 1975 the war was fought, 16 years, making it the longest war in U.S. history. The war was a draw and the U.S. left after they failed to save Saigon.

We first began putting troops in Vietnam in small numbers as advisors in 1959; the major build-up occurred in late '65 and 1966; troop numbers reached their peak in 1968, and all troops were withdrawn the end of April, 1973.

Some historians select the year 1955 when Eisenhower first sent US Military Advisers to VN. Some historians prefer to use the year 1961 when Kennedy sent US Special Forces to Vietnam; some historians use the year 1965 when Johnson sent US Regulars to VN.

Some historians use the year 1973 as the end, when US COMBAT troops were withdrawn; some historians use the year 1975, when the last US Personnel were evacuated from Saigon in 1975, and the South fell to the North.

So the war was 14 years long.

Most historians generally accept the year 1961 as the starting date, and the North did conquer South Vietnam in 1975.
