The Vietnam War was one of the worst in American history. Combat in the jungle was difficult, and it was hard to know who exactly was the enemy, since Vietnam had two different sides of the war as well.

The unusual climate and conditions in Vietnam, coupled with the fighting style of the Viet Cong created a very inhospitable environment for American soldiers. The climate was subtropical, making it particularly unhealthy for soldiers who had to endure heat, humidity and monsoons wearing heavy uniforms and gear. The jungle like terrain made passage laborious. The jungles held dangers from malarial mosquitoes, leeches, ticks, fire ants, venomous snakes and the occasional rampaging tiger. The Viet Cong were crafty and masters at guerillas warfare, so they were kept in a constant state of anxiety, wondering which direction or what type of attack would come next.

Hard on American SoldiersI think it affected the American soldiers because they were there and they felt like it wasn't their war to fight. Not only that they would sit and wait for the enemy and then out of no where and then just like that your friend right next to you would be dead. They were also in extreme weather and had barely any food. Not to mension that those who have been exposed to Agent Orange and now have to deal with cancers and getting the skin cut off so it doesn't come back. They also have nightmares and bad days when they just dream about it or think about it. That is my opinion but if anyone else know or thinks different I am open to new ideas of why it is hard on them. US servicemen returning home from Vietnam were treated with hostility, discrimination, and rejection.


The Vietnam war was one of the first wars in American history the the majority of the public didn't approve of. To the public, there was no clear purpose (or at least an unclear purpose), like during WW2, when the clear purpose was to defeat the Nazis. Therefore, for the first time, soldiers doubted what they were fighting for, and when they came back, they were looked down on and even hated.


American Soldiers!!!!! What do you think they were called!!! Wow, this guy.... They were called GI as in Government Issue Actually the Germans called them "amis". Pronounced like Ummies (Plural) Ami for one American soldier.


It was brutal. The Vietcongs mainly hide in Laos or underground during the day. At night they would ambush American troops, which really messed with their mental stability. The Americans were frustrated they could not find them and kill them but also they were scared for their life. Mainly the American POW's were attacked mentally. They were beaten and tortured. That is why if you try to interview a Vietnam veteran, they most likely can't. It was the worst experience in their entire life, going back to it is too difficult and upsetting.
