The Vietnam government claimed that about 400,000 Vietnamese were killed by America in Vietnam.

because America was controlling the south Vietnam

Vietnam Veterans of America was created in 1978.

The Vietnam war mattered because that was a time period when most countries in Asia were becoming more and more communist. normally, when a country becomes communist, the neighboring countries will also become communist. that is called the domino effect. North Vietnam not only wanted to spread communism, but completely annex South Vietnam. countries such as United States of America did not want that to happen. As you see, North Vietnam annexed South Vietnam because America could not fight anymore. the population was turning against them and could not fight an invisible enemy.

?........the Vietnam war was a war between north and south Vietnam and America. America was trying to defend south Vietnam from the north invading and controling their territory. so America was on the side with south Vietnam
