The Second Indochina War, 1954-1975, started out of the long conflict between France and Vietnam. After one hundred years of colonial rule, a defeated France was forced to leave Vietnam in July 1954. Communist forces defeated the allied French troops at the remote mountain outpost in the northwest corner of Vietnam known as Dien Bien Phu. This decisive battle victory for the North Vietnamese convinced the French that they could no longer maintain their Indochinese colonies and withdrew from Vietnam. The two sides came together in Geneva, Switzerland, to compromise for peace and signed the Geneva Peace Accords. The United States did not support the Geneva Accords because they thought it granted too much power to the Communist Party of Vietnam and as a result, we eventually went to war with North Vietnam. The Johnson administration wanted it to become a limited war, which is defined as a limited mobilization of resources, little effect on human life, and caused little disruption in everyday life in America. The Ironic twist to this is that it did exactly the opposite and as the deaths mounted and Americans continued to leave for Southeast Asia, the Johnson administration was met with the full weight of American anti-war sentiments. Everyone was getting together and opposing the war in Vietnam including Vietnam veterans, students in college, and pacifists who all shared the same goal and that was to end the corrupt war in Vietnam and bring about peace to the world. They would eventually meet this goal. (Guenter, 1978, pgs. 1-54) (The History Place, 1999, pg1-4)( Charles Scribner's Sons, 1996, pgs.5-17)Jan Barry Crumb, who served in Vietnam in 1962-1963 and enrolled in and then resigned from West Point after his Vietnam service, is the best known of the veterans who created VVAW and was the president for a long time. Founded in New York City in 1967 after Barry and five Vietnam vets marched together in a peace demonstration, Vietnam Veterans Against the War, Inc. (VVAW) was organized. These Vietnam veterans would express their views in demonstrations and marches through cities after returning from war over in Vietnam. Their membership grew rapidly to over thirty thousand members across the US. Their goals were to unite the people and bring an end to the Johnson and Nixon administrations and their "corrupt policies" and to end the war and bring back our "American brothers." VVAW exposed the ugly truths that the American government was trying to hide from the people and helped show many other Americans the unjust nature of that war. They also quickly took up the struggle for the rights and needs of veterans and in 1970 started the first groups to deal with the traumatic after-effects of war and had set the example for readjustment counseling at Vet Centers today. They also exposed the shameful neglect of many disabled vets in VA Hospitals and helped draft legislation to improve educational benefits and create job programs. VVAW helped expose the...
