About

Overview

In addition to the more than three-million Americans who served during the Vietnam War and witnessed it firsthand, this lengthy conflict touched nearly every aspect of the American experience in the 1960s and 1970s. The Vietnam War influenced the peacenik generation that formed its identity in opposition to U.S. involvement in Vietnam and was the root cause of the Watergate scandal that forced the resignation of President Richard Nixon.
