Again this may be dependent on where yoi place the beginning of the war in Vietnam. Some place it in the days of President Truman with the gift of a few aircraft to the French, others credit President Eisenhower with large equipment grants, CIA pilots and the first military advisors to South Vietnam. President Kennedy inherited 12,000 of Ike's Vietnamese advisors and added to that along with massive armament grants, training opportunities and naval and aviation assets. Some start the US involvement with Tonkin Gulf Resolution and the peacefull landing of the Marines under President Johnson.

It doesn't matter. WWI, WWII, Korea which has been active since 1950, the Reolutionary War, the War of 1812, Haiti, Panama, the Gulf War, the Spanish American, the Mexican War, the Civil War (which may last forever) or the War against the Barbary Coast Pirates. The longest continuous war in the US has been the war between the American Indians and its invaders.
