Assignment The Vietnam War Describe the connection between student unrest and the Vietnam War noting how each affected the other?

Student unrest and the war in Vietnam were interconnected. While students were opposing other issues back at home, their main concern was America's involvement in what they deemed a 'win less' war. They felt that way because it was simply impossible to contain communism in Southeast Asia. They also felt that so many poor American kids were going over there to kill or die at the hands of other poor people. The Vietnam War and the lies that accompanied it seriously impacted and affected the student union movement back home. In fact, many people believe it was the war that led to student protests and demonstrations in the first place.
