Streaming jungles Napalm Underground tunnels Agent Orange Guerrilla warfare Vietnam A conflict that started in controversy ended with controversy and has made nothing but controversy since When the men returned home from war they were not greeted with pride but with uneasiness The veterans even faced controversy over their own memorial The Vietnam Veterans Memorial has been an issue of debate since its beginning a debate that is far from worthwhile Vietnam is a very important war in the story of Americas history Vietnam was Americas second most expensive war behind World War II It also is Americas fourth most deadly With a cost of 123 billion and a death toll of 57661 American lives Divine 956 it is hard to comprehend why it took this country ten years to dedicate a proper national memorial Vietnam didnt begin as a gruesome event that would give millions a chill with its mention In fact in December of 1962 there were ten to twelve thousand American troops participating in a nice little nine-to-five war Devine956 The US had a presence in Vietnam for the purpose of stopping the spread of communism When the Americans wanted action they could go out and find it and when they wanted a break it was said that they had no fear of counterattacks This method of part-time warfare went on for a while no fighting after 430 or on weekends but unfortunately the situation changed dramatically Two years later 50000 more troops were sent down for combat In 1967 40000 men and boys were stationed thereDivine 956 The combat was like nothing they had ever seen At first air strikes were sent but they did not have as much effect as planned Next hoards of troops were sent in to search out the North Vietnamese in their own jungles This ended up in complete failure due to the fact that the Vietnamese were so much better adapted for this guerrilla warfare
