How old were both of the presidents that served during Vietnam war?
There has not been a U.S President that served in Vietnam.
A few similarities of George W. Bush and George Washington are: both have the first name of George both served as US Presidents both were presidents during a war (and a war that each partly initiated) both were respected and disrespected during their time in office both 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.

When was the last time America almost had a revolt or revolution I remember someone saying it was during the Vietnam war but I'm not sure?

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.
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.
