So Some Of The Troops Would Not Die
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.
Assuming an 18-year old was in Vietnam in April, 1973 when the last U.S. combat forces left Vietnam, he might live to be 90 years old in 2045. Most Vietnam vets have turned 65, or will turn 65 in the next five years.

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.
Noon time because it's so hot they could die from the heat.
A lot. Most of them die during kitten season but I would say that at least 548,000 or more die each year.
