Vietnam compared to the 1960's to Today
In the 1960's, Vietnam had no freedom. Everyone had a terrible life. Protests went on as the Vietnam War did. Today, everyone praises their veterans, and thanks to them, Vietnam now has their freedom.
What I learned from the Veterans
The Vietnam War was started because of World War II. The French wanted Vietnam back after they won the war. The United States army was very sneaky. The United States army camped out on mountains, and kept watch. Helicopters had to drop off Food, ammunition, etc. for the army. There were mines and traps everywhere, so people were very nervous walking out there. ETC.
