6.3. Vietnam

6.3.1. Vietnamization- This was the process of replacing American troops with South Vietnamese troops. President Nixon wanted them out because of backlash he had gotten and the war kept getting more intense.

6.3.2. Aftermath- When soldiers came back from the war, most didn't have anywhere to go or have any money. The war basically took over their lives, including them coming back with diseases or having PTSD of what happened. It ruined peoples lives. Many Americans also no longer trusted the government because they really didn't know what was going on.

6.3.3. Fighting- The American troops couldn't tell North and South Vietnamese apart and there weren't any uniforms to distinguish the enemy. The North Vietnamese had tunnels so they could attack and retreat before Americans could fight back. The American soldiers didn't know that so they were unprepared. I think a big problem with the war was that they didn't really know what they were getting themselves into and they ended up not containing communism afterall.
