A+students 1974

The US got out of the Vietnam War in 1973, but forces were present until 1975 when Saigon fell and North Vietnam completed its takeover of the South.

US combat operations ceased in 1973 after relentless US bombing of Hanoi forced North Vietnam to sign the Paris Peace Accords. Nearly all American troops were withdrawn that year. Some advisors and logistical personnel remained to support our allies, the South Vietnamese. Congress eventually cut off aid to South Vietnam in 1975 just as Hanoi launched its "Easter Offensive" against South Vietnamese forces. North Vietnamese troops soon captured Saigon and gained control of the entire country, ending the war. Token US military personnel evacuated our allies in the closing days, but American combat involvement ended two years earlier.

The cutoff date for issuing the Vietnam Service Medal was March 28, 1973. Officially the last combat troops left Vietnam on March 29, 1973.
