The Pres. Who Started the Vietnam MessEisenhower sent military advisors to Vietnam. I don't believe he went there personally. He got the whole mess started. WRONGEisenhower left office in January 1961. KENNEDY (the favorite of the peace-loving Democrats) sent the first equipment and advisors to Vietnam, so Ike had no part in the Vietnam War. YOU ARE WRONG...Eisenhower sent military to Vietnam in 1959 to train and arm the South Vietnamese. Look it up. Sort of wrong again.TRUMAN sent the first equipment and advisors in 1950.

EISENHOWER sent billions of dollars worth of equipment and a few hundred advisors but refused to send combat troops or even provide air support.

KENNEDY sent the first combat forces.

Nope ... that's still not quite right!Kennedy increased the number of advisors from Eisenhower's several hundred to 16,000. In Oct '63 Kennedy approved National Security Action Memorandum 263, on Robert McNamara's advice (SecDef), authorizing the staged withdrawal of all advisors over about two years, beginning with the first 1000 by the end of the year. JFK was murdered the month after he signed NSAM-263. Then instead of a phased disengagement, LBJ embarked on a gradual increase in the number of advisors to, I think, about 25,000. Only after that did LBJ send in the first ground combat troops, a matter of months after the Gulf of Tonkin, I believe.

I THINK THAT THE CORRECT ANSWER IS THAT.....

Truman sent equipment and advisors, eisenhower sent advisors, intelligence agents and Air America. Then Kennedy increased our aid to include more troops. I could be wrong though....
