I remember it too, though most of it was hyped info, capitalized on by politicians more recently in the 1980s here in NYC and elsewhere as the “forgotten parade” I think the truth was, it was never a declared war, yet the scale of it overshadowed the sacrifice of those that served, many had been young volunteers and inductees in WWII, the servicemen and women that served in the Korean War a war which still stands without treaty. America basically wanted to fight an air cavalry war in Vietnam, but weather, and translation problems, along with mechanical ones, caused a withdrawal of what I read as all the helicopters (former SOS Colin Powell of the Bronx his son the former FCC chairperson, was ballyhooed for crashing in one I think recall) by 1972.
