A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Vietnam War Collection - In January 1955, the U.S. gave $216 million in aid for South Vietnam's civil war with North Vietnam. The French had given up on its war there, and the U.S. role was growing. On October 22, 1957, 13 U.S. servicemen were injured in a bombing in Saigon and in November, 1961, President Kennedy announced that U.S. military advisors would be increased over two years to 16,000. The pivotal event in the conflict occurred on August 7, 1964 when then President Johnson was given authority to strike back against North Vietnam after their patrol boats had made "unprovoked attacks on American ships in the Gulf of Tonkin." Troop strengths increased as ground, sea, and air strikes grew. In 1965 American troops fought for the first time alongside soldiers of Saigon. As the human and material costs of the war rose, so did the dissatisfaction back home leading to both peaceful and violent anti-war demonstrations. In June, 1969, Pres. Nixon ordered a reduction of 25,000 from the 500,000-man fighting force. It was time to change. August 11, 1972, saw the heaviest raids by B52 bombers against North Vietnam at the same time the last ground combat units left Danang, effectively ending U.S. participation in this most divisive war. On March 19, 1973, the last American prisoners of war were released, and the war essentially came to an end.
