Vietnam

We learned in class the war had taken many lives military and civilian over the span of nineteen years. During the Nixon administration efforts were made to end it somehow as the introduction of a new military stragety was introduced it was called “Vietnamization” it was an effort to began withdraw of US military and hand power over to the South Vietnamese.

Even with the “Paris Peace Accord” the fighting continued. Eventually the US had an emergency evacuation and the fall Saigon in 1975. People evacuated in military choppers and eventually made it to the US and began new lives.
