The new adult age in the US became 18 instead of age 21. Men are NO LONGER drafted; an all volunteer military was created. There are NO LONGER two countries in Southeast Asia called North & South Vietnam; there is only one Communist country called Vietnam. Individual US Infantrymen & US Marine Riflemen NO LONGER have full automatic capabilities on their individual rifles; they can only fire in short round bursts today. The Vietnam War was the ONLY war in US history in which every individual US Infantrymen and US Marine had a fully automatic rifle. After action reports indicated that US riflemen were "wasting" ammunition in return for "hits" on enemy personnel. "Rock 'n Roll" (Automatic Fire) sounded good, but was ineffective. Fixed-wing Aircraft (airplanes) have been replaced by helicopters and satellites for "spotting" artillery (adjusting artillery fire). US Infantrymen combat steel helmets have been replaced by ballistic armor. Maps & Compass's have been replaced by computers (GPS).

The U.S. military were pulled out of Vietnam in 1973 after the signing of the Paris Peace Accords. South Vietnam was left to defend itself with supplies and training supplied by the U.S.

North Vietnamese forces moved slowly until late 1974, when they began a major push into the northern provinces of South Vietnam. They completed the sweep south by April, 1975 when North Vietnamese forces took over the Presidential Palace compound in Saigon, and declared the two Vietnams unified.
