Equal opportunity occurred AFTER Vietnam. Vietnam was the last traditional war fought by men. Women in Vietnam and the US military were ALL VOLUNTEERS, and they mostly served in the medical field. US Military leadership in Vietnam consisted of World War II commanders (Westmoreland, Abrams, Colonel Patton (GEN Patton's son), Curtis LeMay, etc.) and they fought Vietnam WWII style; which was the only way they knew. American tradition in Vietnam, Korea, WWII, WWI, etc. required that "Mom and Apple Pie" were to be protected; consequently, US women were men.
