EESA 798 -- Vietnam Revisited: What Did We Learn -- Jun. 24 to Jul. 1

Over fifty years ago, in March 1965, US Marines landed at Da Nang, beginning a military build-up that eventually grew to over 550,000 by 1968 (including Second Lieutenant Jack Segal, fresh out of Infantry OCS). Fifteen years later, the U.S. had nearly 50,000 killed, suffered more than 300,000 wounded (many suffering still today from PTSD and other wounds) and had spent over $150 billion. Vietnamese casualties are estimated at nearly 5 million killed, including 4 million civilians. This two-part analysis will explore how we got into the war, how we chose to fight it, what we left behind and what the experience means for current and future conflicts.
