Vietnam soldiers were treated quite differently than soldiers returning from previous wars. This is because the Vietnam war itself caused great controversy in the US over whether we should be involved or not an many opposed it. When the soldiers returned home they were not greeted with fanfare and excitement. They were greeted with cold shoulders and no respect. Part of this is also due to the media that made the soldiers appear to be killers that destroyed entire civillian villages, which was not true. Many people even hated the soldiers that returned although there was rarely violence involved.
