Best Answer

the tension between north and south came to a disagreement-north thought they deserved all of Vietnam and war was about to brake out South Vietnam asked America to help lyndon B Johnson and Kennedy sent trainer to train the armies of the south soon that was not enough to help the southern Vietnamese people so troops were sent Vietnam. If one searches The Vietnam War and finds many start and end dates the reason for that is very simple. There was never an official start date of the war in Vietnam because war was never officially declared. America became very involved with the war in 1960. you check it out on CNN time line its pretty cool and simple find

The US Navy transported US personnel to Vietnam by ship. The US Air Force transported US personnel by aircraft. Civilian Airliners were contracted to transport US personnel to Vietnam, landing at airfields (airports) such as Bien Hoa, Republic of South Vietnam.
