He wasn't there for the whole war, but General William C. Westmoreland did lead the war effort and its buildup at MACV from 1964 to 1968. His place in the history of this event is still controversial and among Vietnam Vetrans the mention of his name will split the group into two strongly divergent sides, each ready to fight the war all over again.

Westy was replaced by Gen. Creghton Williams Abrams Jr. (1968 - '72)
