The Vietnam War Begins

It is difficult to precisely date the start of the Vietnam War: President Eisenhower sent military advisors to Vietnam during the 1950s. Some years later, President Kennedy increased the number of military advisors. The tipping point occurred in 1965 when President Johnson dispatched 3,500 combat-ready U.S. Marines to the beach of Da Nang, South Vietnam. That year, 1965, has by convention become the official start of the Vietnam War.

The first American combat casualty occurred soon after the 1965 Marine landing at Da Nang. There would be fifty-eight thousand additional American casualties among the 2.6 million "in country" Vietnam Veterans by war's end in 1975.

By way of commemoration and a belief in the need to remember, understand and review our history, we suggest the eleven episodes of "Vietnam: A Television History" linked below. The series was first broadcast in 1997 as episodes of the PBS "American Experience" program. The series - considered a landmark of impartial TV journalism - examines the genesis, conduct and conclusion of the controversial Vietnam War.

Controversy aside and despite the passing of more than fifty-years, the membership of VVA Chapter 103 continues to remember, care for and support their fellow Vietnam Veterans: those who fought gallantly and paid dearly to write a bitter episode of their American experience.
