The Vietnam War was long and costly and involved the communist regime of North Vietnam and its southern allies against South Vietnam and its allies.

According to Dr. John Garland, of the historical offices of the Secretary of Defense, “The process by which the United States became embroiled in the war was evolutionary and incremental.”

Last Saturday, a Vietnam Veterans Commemoration took place at Missouri Veterans Cemetery in Higginsville on what is known as Armed Forces Day.
