There has not been a U.S President that served in Vietnam.
The United States had 500,000 servicemen "in country" in the Republic of South Vietnam at it's peak strength during the Vietnam War. 2,594,000 servicemen ultimately served "in country." 3,403,100 US servicemen served through South East Asia during the Vietnam War.
A few similarities of George W. Bush and George Washington are:both have the first name of Georgeboth served as US Presidentsboth were presidents during a war (and a war that each partly initiated)both were respected and disrespected during their time in officeboth were loved / revered as well as hated / despised during their political careers
Vietnam war veterans are members of the military (of any country) who have served during the Vietnam war (1959-1975) -- while World War 2 veterans served during WWII (1939-1945). I have several family members who have served in both wars. You can learn about some of the symbols/conflicts/awards during both wars at SoldierCity. They have a large assortment of medals, patches, and flags for both wars. In fact, I just went to www.soldiercity.com to get a Vietnam flag for my grandfather (a Vietnam War veteran), and some World War 2 clothing w/Navy ships for his dad (one of our highly honored WWII veterans, who's alive and well to this day!)
There were two Presidents whose fathers were also Presidents. They were John Quincy Adams and George W. Bush, the sons of John Adams and George H.W. Bush respectively. Also, both these Presidents never served as Vice Presidents, but their fathers served so.
Both were presidents that were assassinated.
Yes. In fact both countries had combat troops helping South Vietnam during the Vietnam war.
YES. During the Vietnam War, both the North and the South drafted their men.
South's perspective is to establish an independent Vietnam free from communism. That is what both Ngo Dinh Diem and Nguyen Van Thieu envisioned when they were both presidents. Both men used the rhetoric of democracy and capitalism in order to justify their goals in eliminating communism in Vietnam.
The Adams family were lawyers before and after they became presidents. Both also served as ambassadors and in other governmental posts.
Vietnam has been both colonized (as part of French Indochina) and invaded, by the United States during the Vietnam War.
I work with a fellow police officer who cliams to have won both the bronz star and silver star during Vietnam yet was never wonded. He further claims to served 3 tours of duty in country with the U.S. Army. I find it hard to belive an individual won both awards. Does anyone know of this happening?
Six future presidents served in the navy - George H. W. Bush, Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Nixon, Ford and Carter. Both Roosevelts served as assistant-secretaries of the Navy. Bush was a navy pilot since there was no separate air force department in those days.
Both the Soviet Union and China supplied armaments to North Vietnam.
Lincoln and Davis were both born about the same time; both came from Kentucky; both presidents were over six feet tall; their vice presidents were under six feet tall; they both served on opposite sides of the civil war; and they also both basically alike.
The "turbulent" 60s. Remember the Beatles song: "Ya say ya wanna have a Revolution..." History has chosen both the 19th & 20th "60s" to be Americas worst times. 1. Two presidents shot in both 60s (Lincoln & Kennedy) 2. A divided nation in both 60s (Civil War & Vietnam) 3. Civil Rights movements in both 60s (Emancipation Proclamation (Civil War) & Martin Luther King (Vietnam War). 4. Draft riots in both 60s (Civil War & Vietnam) 5. And by a strange coincidence both assassinated presidents were replaced by a vice president named JOHNSON.
I count six : Martin Van Buren, John Tyler, Andrew Johnson, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon .
Both men in your question were presidents, so no president served "under them". Please rewrite your question to state what you want to know.
This was a disparaging term applied to US soldiers because of incidents of both accidental and deliberate killings of children and infants (by both sides) during the Vietnam War. The term was used by the most vociferous opponents of the war, and was an undeserved epithet for the majority of the US military who served in a difficult conflict, often with ambiguous directions from their superiors.
Actually it was very much like a war fought nearly 100 years earlier; the US Civil War. Both the Civil War and Vietnam had US presidents assassinated; both had vice presidents named Johnson take over the office after the assassinations. Both wars had a draft and draft riots and draft dodgers. Both wars were UNDECLARED, and in both wars; the south lost. Both wars began in '61.
