Quick Facts on the Vietnam War

By April 22, 2012

U.S. Marines at Dong Ha, Vietnam during war

Do you struggle to recall when the Vietnam War ended? Want to discuss modern-day parallels with the My Lai Massacre, but can't remember when it happened? Then Quick Facts on the Vietnam War is for you.

I love to write long, detailed historical narratives. Sometimes, however, readers just need a quick glance at key facts, without all the verbiage. So, I am trying to create some stripped-down pages with "nothing but the facts."

What do you think? Do you find this useful? Let me know in the comments section below, and thanks!

what information is on vanietm era marine corps dog tags?I have my father’s dog tags from when he served in the Marines in the Vietnam war era. I believe under his name and initials is his age and then birthday but I am not positive as the day is off by two days from the birthday I thought he had. Now the soldiers ssn is used but as this number is only 7 long it cannot be that. Can anyone tell me what that number is for sure?
