US troops were in Vietnam as early as 1945, as a result of the ending of World War II. Lt. Col. A. Peter Dewey, head of an American OSS mission, was killed by Vietminh troops and became the first American soldier to die in Vietnam. It is believed he was mistaken by the Vietminh to be a Frenchman. The Eisenhower administration provided South Vietnam with money and advisers to help stop the threat of a North Vietnamese takeover. Eisenhower and Kennedy continued to send advisers to South Vietnam. Following the passage of the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, President Johnson sent in 3,500 Marines, the first official troops, to South Vietnam. By the end of 1965, there were 200,000 US troops in Vietnam.

What do troops think about Vietnam by 1970?

I was not in Vietnam, still, I have heard a number of men talk about it. Unlike the solders from World War 2, none of the Vietnam Veterans considered the Vietnam War worth fighting. Many were totally upset with the incompetence with the people back at the Pentagon. Many solders in the field despised the situation. Americans had to fight because South Vietnamese would not. The fighting was pointless. The solders knew either they could stay and die forever or they could get out and watch South Vietnam fall.
