Southeast Asia: where we fought, 1955 - 1973

Vietnam - divided into N and S Vietnam from 1954 - 1975 - was a Cold War conflict for the US.

Trying to stop the spread of communism, the US lost 58,000 to death and some 300,000 in casualties. Our fighting allies were S Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and, of course, S Vietnam, acc to Wikipedia.
