Several. Australia,, The , Thailand, and the Republic of Korea ( ) sent troops to Vietnam.
Australia and South Vietnam were both members of the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) with an obligation to defend member states.
SEATO required a unanimous vote from all members, which it never recieved, for involvement in the Vietnam War. So, some of the countries that were part of SEATO participated in the war, on behalf of America's request.
Somewhat democratic South Vietnam was a member of the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO), so by treaty, we were obligated to help defend South Vietnam. We entered the Vietnam War to help South Vietnam stop Communist North Vietnam from their attempts to unify the whole country.
America Signed the SEATO treaty,after WWII,and when south Vietnam was attacked by the North,America responded. There were others that Signed the SEATO Agreement,but we were the only ones that showed up..
Australia was a member of the South East Asia Treaty Organization, as was South Vietnam. SEATO was the pacific alliance that drew together the U.S., Korea, Philippines, and Australia to defend South Vietnam against a take-over by North Vietnam.
SEATO stands for South East Asia Treaty Organization. The Eisenhower administration provided South Vietnam with money and advisors to help stop the threat of a North Vietnamese takeover. The United States also was pledged by treaty (SEATO) to aid the member nations in southeast Asia, if they were attacked by a foreign (communist) power.
Great Britain specifically did not support Australia in the Vietnam War even though allied under SEATO to resist communist aggression in South East Asia, becoming in many Australian eyes Little England.
Europe had the North Atlantic Teaty Organization (NATO), Asia had the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO). The allies fighting in Vietnam were part of SEATO.

The Vietnam war was a product of the rivalry between the US and the Soviet Union. It was part of the reasoning behind the construction of NATO and SEATO, both of which were created in fear of spreading communism ideals.
They were required to by SEATO Treaty. They entered into the treaty because of the domino theory which stated that if one Southeast Asian country went communist, they all would.
The purpose of SEATO was to help ensure stability to South East Asia and stop the spread of communism to the area. It was designed to be similar to NATO and created because of the Truman Doctrine. The members of SEATO were: Australia, France, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The US attempted to get help from SEATO's member nations in Vietnam but was unsuccessful. The organization disbanded in 1977 officially.
Both were members of the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) - as was the Republic of South Vietnam.
North Vietnam was supported by Soviet Union money and military equipment. Help also came from China, and later from Cuba. South Vietnam, as a member of the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO), was supported by the United States, Canada, South Korea, Australia, and the Philippines.
The South East Asia Treaty Organization, or SEATO.
Yeah, Aus joined when SEATO was signed in 1954 in Manilla, along with the US, France, Britain, Pakistan, NZ, the Philippines and Thailand
NATO, SEATO, nor the UN were utilized in the Vietnam War. The war's controversy had affected the members. However, ANZUS (Australia, New Zealand, United States), even though there were some disagreements there to, did take effect. ANZUS, created in '51, called for defense to protect nations in the immediate Pacific area, thus ANZUS responded. SEATO would've done the same thing, however the SEATO members of Britain, France, and Pakistan refused to deploy troops to Vietnam; thus, again, ANZUS had to hold the line.
SEATO was the Southeast Asian counterpart to NATO in Europe. It was an alliance of nations formed to prevent Communist expansion in Southeast Asia, but it was not as successful as NATO. South Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos fell to the Communists some twenty years after SEATO was created, and the organization was dissolved in the 1970's.
Australia was part of the now-defunct Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) alliance (as was the US, the Republic of Vietnam, and others). That's the reason.
in an attempt to restrict communist aggression in Asian countries.
The SEATO (Southeast Asia Treaty Organisation) alliance was an alliance to sanction the U.S presence in Vietnam. The treaty was between the representatives of Australia, France, Great Britain, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, and the United States.
The government of South Vietnam requested military advisors from the United States to help train the South Vietnamese army. Ho Chi Minh was a communist and during the Cold War of the 1950s and 60s, the aim of the US government was containment of communist power and not to let it spread. The Eisenhower administration provided South Vietnam with money and military advisors (not officially called troops) to help stop the threat of a North Vietnamese takeover. The United States also was pledged by treaty (SEATO) to aid the member nations in southeast Asia, if they were attacked by a foreign (communist) power.
New Zeeland - along with South Viet Nam, Australia, Philippines, and other countries were members of the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO), with a covenant to defend member nations against foreign aggression.
SEATO was actually formed around that time frame, and France was part of SEATO. SEATO was dissolved in about 1977 because France and Pakistan withdrew from SEATO. SEATO was formed to protect the free nations of South East Asia "Treaty Organization" from a communist attack. France had little to nothing to do with why and when SEATO was formed; communism had something to do with it.
