In what sense? We had people over there beginning right after WWII; when the French got kicked out in 1954, we amped up our involvement, still only in an "advisory" capacity. From the late 50s through the early 60s, we steadily increased our footprint, with our "advisors" becoming more involved in combat operations. After the Tonkin Gulf incident in 1964, we began sending troops over without any fiction of "advising". In what sense?

Good points, Some people blame Kennedy & Johnson for the US involvement in Vietnam, most have no idea it was Ike who started troops there.
