First, it wasn't a war. Officially it was a "police action". But if it looks like a war and smells like a war... it was a war. So, who won? The Vietnamese did. We got our butts kicked.

As one who was in a Combined Action Group, living in a village as part of the Marine effort, giving medical aid to the villagers, 50% who were VC, we did not lose the war. We turned it over to the South and they were overtaken two years later. If we lost the war as above: ask the Vietnamese in the U.S., who have a vast better life than in Vietnam if they they agree. If we were not there, they would not be here.
