Johnson gave permission to attack Vietnam forces in 1965. In the same year Saigon fell, which signaled the return of U.S. forces in 1975. U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War was 10 years 1965-75.

The United States had soldiers in Vietnam from 1959 to 1973. The Paris Peace Accords were signed in February, 1973 among North Vietnam, South Vietnam and the United States. The U.S. had all of their troops out of Vietnam by April, 1973.

The South Vietnamese government fell to the communist North in April, 1975.

From 1959 to 1975 the war was fought, 16 years, making it the longest war in U.S. history. The war was a draw and the U.S. left after they failed to save Saigon.
